Scientists running the COM-COV study have done some preliminary analysis of neutralising antibody titres against the omicron variant, from samples from people who’d either been vaccinated with two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or with two doses of the Oxford AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
Journalists dialled in to this briefing to hear from the scientists who have done the research and to ask any questions.
Please note this data is a preprint, so it is early work that has not yet been through peer-review and is not published in a journal.
