Vaccinated People Are Less Prone To Omicron Danger, Odisha Health Official


As per the latest information from the Odisha Health officials, Omicron can be less deadly to people who are vaccinated. Of course vaccination will not be 100 percent effective with the Omicron virus but people, mostly who are fully vaccinated will have lesser risk of serious infection, hospitalization and death.

“Though vaccines are not able to give cent percent protection against Omicron, those will at least provide cross protection to the vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people will not be that much critical if they are infected by Omicron. There is also a less chance of hospitalisation and death for them,” said the State Director of Family Welfare, Bijay Panigrahi on Tuesday.

“The number of Omicron cases is increasing in other states and there are chances that some people of the State will be infected by the new variant sooner or later. Under these circumstances, the unvaccinated will infect others. Hence, people should be more careful and get themselves vaccinated as soon as possible,” he further added.

Notably, as many as 4.62 crore doses of vaccines have been administered to the people of the State so far. On the other hand, around 40 lakh people are yet to be administered the first dose of the vaccine.
