California ‘Epsilon’ Covid variant contains three mutations which could allow the strain to bypass vaccine immunity, study finds
- Spike proteins in the California 'Epsilon' variant may be able to evade the neutralizing antibodies in Pfizer and Moderna vaccines
- Effectiveness of vaccines could potentially be reduced by 50 to 70 percent against the strain
- The findings mean that the vaccines will not be effective in combatting the variant
- Over 97% of cases of the Epsilon variant have been detected in the U.S., with almost half in California
