Children Vaccination: Parents will be relieved if the child is vaccinated before the third wave.
This time the government is taking steps to start vaccinating children. The health ministry wants to start vaccinating 12- to 18-year-olds before the third wave strikes. Therefore, the head of the national vaccine expert team, Dr. NK Aurora, said that the vaccination program will start from September.
Which vaccine will be given to children?
Zydus vaccine will be given to children on an emergency basis. Which is coming to India next week. The trial of the giant Zydus vaccine has been reported to be successful. Parents will be relieved if the child is vaccinated before the third wave.
On the other hand, trial number three of Covaxin is almost at an end. In addition to the Zydus vaccine, there will also be Covaxin. Dr. NK Arora hopes to start vaccinating everyone between the ages of 2 and 18 between January and February of the new year. But information about the trial that is going on at this age is not yet available.
Schools and colleges have been closed for a year and a half due to corona infection. Which has a huge impact not only on the reading of the students but also on their mental state. Apart from avoiding the third wave, the center is also thinking about opening schools and colleges. And so this time the emphasis is on starting vaccinations at this level.
Chief Dr NK Aurora also said that Zydus Cadillac would get approval to apply on an emergency basis before August. Vaccination of children with this vaccine will start in September.
