Many public health officials have insisted the current Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective against the Omicron variant.
However, scientists say that too often that is proving not to be the case. Multitudes of "fully-vaccinated" and boosted Americans are becoming ill with Covid. That's often after three recommended shots in less than a year. While officials say most cases appear to be non-serious, some patients do become seriously ill.
That's where a new vaccine being researched by the Army could play an important role.
According to reports, the single shot would be effective against all Covid variants. Again, public health officials have insisted the current vaccines are highly effective against Covid variants, even as vaccinated and boosted people are becoming ill in large numbers. And pharmaceutical companies are said to be working to develop new vaccine formations to use against Omicron and/or other variants, while insisting the current vaccines are just fine.
The Army vaccine is still under development.
According to Defense One:
Within weeks, scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research expect to announce that they have developed a vaccine that is effective against COVID-19 and all its variants, even Omicron, as well as previous SARS-origin viruses that have killed millions of people worldwide. The achievement is the result of almost two years of work on the virus. The Army lab received its first DNA sequencing of the COVID-19 virus in early 2020. Very early on, Walter Reed’s infectious diseases branch decided to focus on making a vaccine that would work against not just the existing strain but all of its potential variants as well.Defense One
