Booster jabs may offer good protection against the new Omicron variant, according to experts. Results from a major new study on the effects of third doses said the body's T cell immune response after a booster vaccine may provide protection from hospital admission and death.

The study found the booster, which is now being offered to all adults in the UK, worked well against different variants of coronavirus.

The study backs up the UK’s decision to offer Pfizer or Moderna as a third shot, with mRNA jabs leading to the most significant rise in immunity levels.
