The third dose may be the key to pull Norway out of the wave of infection.
Norwegian health authorities are considering shortening the time between the second and third dose of the current five months for ramping up vaccination.
But even with a third dose in the body, you can still get infected, figures from Denmark show.
234 subjects received a refreshing dose of Omicron. That’s roughly 10 percent of all cases, as one explains Transfer from the Danish authorities.
The report shows 2,471 cases of omicron in the country. Of these, more than 1,800 people were vaccinated with two doses.
In Norway, to date no omicron cases have received the third dose, NRK has been reported by the FHI.
Assistant Director FHI I still think it will happen.
We expect that those vaccinated with three doses will also be infected, says Geir Buchholm.
Family Health International is not surprised by the news from Denmark. Bukholm emphasizes that it is still too early to draw conclusions about omikron.
Currently, there are small numbers to rely on, but a third dose is not expected to reduce the risk of infection to zero, he says.
– It’s still important
Although those who have taken the third dose are not protected against oomicron infection, the vaccine is still an important tool.
The most important effect of a third dose is to protect high-risk groups and the elderly from serious illness and hospitalization, says Bucolm.
All the new knowledge that is now available is knowledge that contributes to a better understanding of the situation. He goes on to say that the data now coming from Denmark is certainly not surprising.
Found in several countries
It’s not only in Denmark that people who get three doses get the new variant.
In Germany, seven people were infected with a third dose of omicron. Writes in Singapore, two people have been reported with omicrons Bloomberg.
In a report from the United Kingdom, they found that a third dose protected only 75 per cent of cases.
The study was conducted by the UK’s Health Security Agency. They studied 581 cases of Omicron, and believe that a third dose is not as effective as it would be against other variants of the virus.
It protects against diseases
Three research groups Reports indicate that vaccines will not provide satisfactory protection against oomicron infection. The vaccine is still expected to provide protection against serious illness, and preliminary studies show that a third dose has some effect.
Statistics from the International Family Health Organization showed on Friday that 939,425 people have been vaccinated with the third dose of the coronary artery vaccine in Norway.
On Friday, the FHI wrote that there are now 117 cases of omicron in Norway. The number may be higher as the numbers were not updated on Sunday.
