Omicron-specific According to fresh evidence, Covid boosters seem to be effective independent of any adverse effects you may have
You may have noticed certain negative effects if you have previously received your omicron-specific COVID booster. A few of them might have even been more potent than your prior shot.
You shouldn’t be concerned, though, because, according to experts and recent data, the new shots seem to work whether you have mild, moderate, or no adverse effects at all.
Before their clinical studies were complete, the new boosters received approval from the CDC and the US Food and Drug Administration. However, recently made public data from Pfizer and BioNTech’s ongoing clinical research offers a first look at how well the new shots perform in people, demonstrating that the new boosters strongly elicited an immune response against the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants of omicron.
According to the most recent statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 11.5 million Americans have rolled up their sleeves to receive the booster since it was initially distributed at the start of September. More Americans might comply: According to a Kaiser Family Foundation survey, almost a third of U.S. people say they’ve either purchased one or plan to “as soon as feasible.”
