Omicron Variant Prompts Governments to Push Covid-19 Boosters

TEL AVIV—Israel, the United Arab Emirates and the U.K., all early adopters of the Covid-19 vaccine, are urging their residents to get a booster shot as governments globally consider options to help fend off the coronavirus’s new Omicron variant.
