Will those who have received both the doses of the Kovid vaccine, get a booster dose? Right now the Health Ministry is not considering any such thing. According to health ministry sources, no expert advice has come about the booster dose so far, so there is no talk on it at the moment. More than 28 crore doses of Kovid vaccine will be available this month.
According to health ministry sources, it will also contain 6 million doses of the world’s first DNA vaccine, Zyco-V. This is a three-dose vaccine. The second dose of which will be given after 28 days and the third dose after 56 days. In October, about 22 crore doses of Covishield and 6 crore doses of Covaccine will be available. India had received about 26 crore vaccine doses in September.
India can also export the vaccine commercially in the fourth quarter of this year after sufficient doses of vaccine are available according to India’s need. According to government sources, the government is expecting that from October 18-19, 100 crore doses will be administered in the country. The health ministry is planning to celebrate it with the covid warriors and health care workers when the 100 crore mark is completed.
According to government sources, the central government is not issuing any separate guidelines for Diwali and Chhath. To prevent the spread of Kovid, the existing guidelines will continue. Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had appealed to the Center to issue guidelines before Diwali-Chhath. Government sources say that the Kovid protocol is already going on and the guidelines are in force, now there is no need for a separate guideline.
