Many people who are vaccinated, boosted and had COVID before are getting it again — and they are furious. They no longer believe the doctors or the president. Several of my patients have come to me (via televisit) feeling I let them down by pushing them to get the vaccine and then the booster only to find themselves sick with Omicron.
I can and do also tell them that though I wish they hadn’t gotten Omicron, they are now protected not only against another bout of Omicron but also against the more dangerous Delta. I can tell them what the Biden administration isn’t: All immunity, no matter how you get it, matters.
Experts have wondered if Omicron’s much-milder symptoms are the result of a naturally milder virus, patients with immunity through infection or vaccination or a combination of all three. Of course, there are person-to-person variations, depending on underlying disease and immune status, but most scientists agree: The more immunity of any kind to COVID, the better.
