What we all want to know:  How well will the vaccines work against this new Omicron variant?

Scientists are scrambling to find the answer. Meanwhile, ongoing studies in South Africa and Germany released preliminary results from two small studies that have found that while vaccines are not as effective at fighting the new variant they still provide protection against severe disease, hospitalizations and death.

And a study in Germany  indicates that a third shot, or a booster, will partially recover the effectiveness of the vaccines, at least for a few months.

Bottom line: Scientists say even just a little bit of antibody activity can be enough to prevent someone from ending up in the hospital.

Get that booster, folks.
