Is Sinovac Effective as Booster for Omicron Variant?

January 28, 2022

I continue to get querries regarding Sinovac as primary and whether Sinovac as a booster is effective or not.

The controversy regarding the effectiveness of SINOVAC against Omicron even with a third dose was put into question when a research came out.from the The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The study was presented a month ago, finding that a third shot of what is one of the world’s most widely used COVID vaccines which is SINOVAC does not produce enough levels of virus-neutralizing antibodies.

A third dose of a vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech, however, significantly improved protection for those who had previously taken two doses of Sinovac, also known as CoronaVac, the research shows.

So what’s is the latest update on Sinovac as primary vaccine followed by Sinovac booster shot have against the Omicron Infection?

Can we feel confident of being protected getting Sinovac as our booster preference?
