Covid vaccine News
Several countries are administering a third and even fourth Covid booster shot. A fourth shot of a Covid preventive is unwarranted at the moment as most people in the country are yet to receive a third dose. The situation in India where a large number of people have been exposed to the virus and also been vaccinated is quite different.
In India, now even 5-year-old children can be given vaccinated against coronavirus. Corbevax vaccine of Biological E Company has been approved for those between 5 to 12 years of age while Covaxin will be given to children between 6 to 12 years of age. These vaccines are administered in two doses each of which is given at an interval of 28 to 40 days
