CDC Strengthens Recommendations and Expands Eligibility for COVID-19 Booster Shots
CDC, May 19, 2022

CDC expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccine booster doses. Children 5 through 11 should receive a booster dose at least 5 months after their primary series. Vaccination with a primary series among this age group has lagged behind other age groups leaving them vulnerable to serious illness. With over 18 million doses administered in this age group, we know that these vaccines are safe, and we must continue to increase the number of children who are protected.

Omicron BA.1/1.1 SARS-CoV-2 Infection among Vaccinated Canadian Adults.
Brown Patrick E et al. The New England journal of medicine 2022 5

Despite the finding of widespread infection, the age-specific patterns caution against the notion that the omicron BA.1/1.1 variant will immunize everyone. In contrast to younger adults, persons 60 years of age or older face the highest rates of hospitalization and death but have the lowest rates of combined infection and vaccination. Strategies to build an immunity wall will continue to depend on high coverage levels of vaccination.

Neutralization of the SARS-CoV-2 Deltacron and BA.3 Variants.
Evans John P et al. The New England journal of medicine 2022 5

Our results indicate that BA.3 is not a substantial immune-escape variant, a finding that is likely due to its reduced number of mutations in the receptor-binding domain as compared with the BA.1 and BA.2 variants. However, the deltacron variant retains the strong resistance of other omicron sublineages and has no enhanced sensitivity to serum obtained during the delta wave.

Routine Surveillance and Vaccination on a University Campus During the Spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Variant
GR Meredith e al, JAMA Network Open, May 18, 2022

The Omicron variant is highly transmissible, particularly in high-density social settings.5,6 Based on analysis of routinely collected population surveillance data, Cornell’s experience shows that traditional public health interventions were not a match for Omicron. While vaccination protected against severe illness, it was not sufficient to prevent rapid spread, even when combined with other public health measures including widespread surveillance testing.
