Moscow [Russia], January 18 (ANI/Sputnik): The effectiveness of the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine against the Omicron coronavirus variant is 75 per cent, Alexander Gintsburg, the head of Russia’s Gamaleya Research Center, said on Tuesday.

“In the population, the effectiveness of the Sputnik V vaccine in relation to Omicron … is 75 per cent,” Gintsburg said in the Rossiya Segodnya press centre. The Gamaleya head added that protection against Omicron increases to 100 per cent if a person receives a Sputnik Light booster dose in six months but decreases to 56-57 per cent if revaccination is not done.

The Sputnik V effectiveness against Omicron decreases by eight times but it is still enough for protection, Gintsburg said, adding that the effectiveness of other vaccines decreases by 21 times.
