The COVID-19 vaccine manufacturer Moderna said on the 20th that the third dose of Moderna can increase the level of antibodies against Omicron.

Pfizer and BNT said that laboratory studies have shown that their third season also helps neutralize Omicron.

 

The proliferation of Omicron has forced many companies to reconsider their plans to return to the office and hold investor meetings.
