WASHINGTON — White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday that the new Omicron strain of the coronavirus would not require a variant-specific booster, which would have meant a fourth dose of the vaccine for some Americans. “Our booster vaccine regimens work against Omicron,” Fauci said at a press briefing of the White House pandemic response team. “At this point, there is no need for a variant-specific booster.”
His comments clarified questions about what being fully vaccinated may mean in the coming weeks and months, as the new, more transmissible Omicron variant sweeps across the nation.
