For example, for somebody who’s previously been infected with COVID, their chance of getting reinfected with omicron is almost 5½-fold higher than reinfection with delta.”

Breakthrough infections are also happening. Dr. Poland says because of the extraordinary transmissibility of the omicron variant, and the waning of immunity from vaccine or over time, there is a decrease in protection against infection.

“If you look after two doses of vaccine, and you wait at least three months, your protection against infection or hospitalization goes down to about 30{f771d91d784324d4be731abc64bffe0d1fd8f26504ceb311bcfd8e5b001778f4}-40{f771d91d784324d4be731abc64bffe0d1fd8f26504ceb311bcfd8e5b001778f4}. If you get
