German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said on Wednesday (Dec. 22) that a fourth COVID-19 shot will be necessary due to the Omicron variant.

Additionally, Lauterbach announced that Germany has already ordered 80 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine made by BioNTech specifically targeting Omicron and should arrive in April or May.

“An offensive booster campaign is our most important building block in the fight against Omicron,” the health minister said.

Lauterbach threw his support behind a general COVID-19 vaccine mandate, saying that without one, it would not be possible to manage coming waves of infection over the long term.
