Texas health officials reported Monday that they had reported the first death linked to the omicron COVID-19 strain.

This is believed to be the first known reported omicron death in the United States.

Officials from Harris County Health said the victim was “a man in his 50s” who was unvaccinated and had underlying health issues.

Although public health officials do not believe omicron is more virulent than previous variants, they do believe that vaccination and a booster shot when eligible appear to reduce your risk of severe illness.
