So far more than 15.9 million first doses of the coronavirus vaccines have been administered in Sri Lanka. Over 13.7 million second doses of the coronavirus vaccines have been administered in Sri Lanka. 

Two doses of a Covid vaccine are not enough to stop you catching the Omicron variant, UK scientists have warned.

Early analysis of UK Omicron and Delta cases showed the vaccines were less effective at stopping the new variant.

But a third booster prevents around 75% of people getting any Covid symptoms.

World Health Organization WHO says it’s reasonable to believe the vaccines will offer some protection against Omicron.
