Study: Kids who were infected with COVID not immune to omicron, but vaccinated are
A new peer-reviewed study has found that children who have been infected COVID-19 are not protected against the omicron variant but those who have been vaccinated with two doses against the virus are. The study was published on Friday in the scientific journal Nature Communications. The tests of five different variants were conducted on blood samples taken from 62 children and teens hospitalized with COVID-19, 65 who were hospitalized with multisystem inflammatory syndrome and 50 who had recovered from mild COVID-19 at home. Omicron was able to evade the body’s immunological response, according to the study.
