Pfizer's data on Omicron encouraging - Biden

United States President Joe Biden stated on Wednesday that the new data released by Pfizer Inc. on coronavirus vaccine effectiveness against the Omicron coronavirus mutation "is encouraging."

"This reinforces what my medical advisors have been emphasizing: that boosters give you the highest protection yet. Anyone who is eligible and has not been boosted should go get a booster today," he tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Pfizer and its partner BioNTech SE revealed that an initial laboratory study showed that a three-dose vaccination using shots they developed "neutralized" the Omicron variant.
