LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Arkansas Department of Health says it’s still too early to know the best way to combat the COVID-19 omicron variant.
However, Deputy State Health Officer Doctor Naveen Patill says preliminary results from researchers prove the state is moving in the right direction.
“People who have had the booster had significantly more antibodies,” Patill said. “If they get infected with omicron they’d be more protected compared to those with just the two doses.”
Patill says right now, getting fully vaccinated is the only way forward.
