Professor Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, said that with the delta variant “as we have seen in the past” it is “highly unlikely” that the new variant will spread strongly among vaccinated populations.
But when that happens, he explained to the BBC that “it could act very quickly” because “the processes of developing a new vaccine are increasingly strong”.
The strain is considered worrying
Although Pollard thinks current vaccines should be effective against the new strain, which is considered “worrying” by the World Health Organization (WHO), he says this can only be confirmed in the coming weeks.
To date, no case of Ômicron variant has been found in the United Kingdom, one of the most affected countries in Europe, with more than 144,500 deaths.
Manufacturers of other vaccines such as Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna and Novavax have also expressed confidence in their ability to fight the new strain.
