Officials from Pfizer and BioNTech, the firms that produced the very first coronavirus vaccine, said that three inoculations of their product “neutralized” the omicron variant in new laboratory tests.

They then announced that they could deliver a reformulated vaccine in March of 2022 if that becomes needed in order to fight the new variant.

“The first line of defence, with two doses of vaccination, might be compromised and three doses of vaccination are required to restore protection,” explained BioNTech Chief Medical Officer Ozlem Tuereci in the Wednesday press conference. However, he stated that the two doses many  millions of people have now had all over the world may still protect against severe forms of the disease.
