Vaccine booster shots are recommended for higher immune response against the Omicron COVID-19 variant for people having already received two jabs of any vaccine makes, according to Thailand’s Siriraj Institute of Clinical Research (SICRES) and the Department of Medical Sciences (DMSC).

 

DMSC Director-General Dr. Supakit Sirilak, said that the antibodies in the blood system generated by vaccines are effective against the Delta variant, but that reduces substantially against the Omicron variant, due to its ability to evade the immune system.

 

Simply put, he said two doses of whatever vaccines are not sufficient to deal with the Omicron variant, hence the need of a booster shot.

Make it easier to actially get the boosters and while you're at it make the venues less like super spreader events.

I can accept  that as a recommendation . In fact I am willing to receive a "booster" at a time and of a type of my choosing. No more nor less!

Then probably no booster.

The serious cases are mostly unvaccinated. 

That's no longer true.  In Israel, more than 60 percent of hospitalizations are fully vaxxed and countries with the highest vaccination rates also seem to have the highest case counts (France, Israel, U.S., etc). Interesting to compare Israel and Palestine, for instance. Just about the same level of deaths per capita although Israel is fully vaxxed while Palestine is only about 36 percent. Most of Africa has very low vaccination rates and yet case counts and deaths are relatively low. Clearly, there are many factors at work besides vaccination rates. That doesn't mean you shouldn't get the vaccine but it is an argument against mandates.
