New research shows that only 10% #Omicron cases are in ppl who have gotten #COVID19 #Booster.

#BoosterShots are 90% effective"

First, this is NOT a critique of the study (currently a pre-print).

Researchers at @MethodistHosp who did this provided a VERY valuable piece of info and are not making any inappropriate claims. Great work!

It's just that it's easy for public/media to misinterpret results!
