If I receive the COVID vaccine, will my body’s immune system still fight off COVID variants?


It is still too early to say if the current vaccines will work on the different COVID variants. The Kent variant (B.1.1.7) is now the main virus being identified in the UK and is more transmissible than the original UK virus found in February 2020. It appears that the Oxford / AstraZeneca and Pfizer / BioNtech vaccines are effective in boosting immunity against the Kent variant. We will update as new information becomes available.
