Vaccination of children starts from July!

Vaccination of children starts from July!

Before the third wave in the country, a delta + variant of coronavirus has spread to its feet. This wave can target young children. Corona vaccine for children in Teva is also expected to hit the market in July. Currently, India Biotech's Kovasin, Pfizer and Zydus Cadillac vaccines can be recognized. 

Ank Arora said on Sunday that tests for the Zydus Cadillac vaccine were almost complete. By the end of July or August, we will start vaccinating children between the ages of 12 and 18. The target is one crore doses a day, he said. We have 6-8 months to vaccinate everyone in the country. In the coming days, our goal is to give 100 million dose injections daily. 

Randeep Guleria said the corona vaccine would be the biggest achievement for children. This will pave the way for schools to reopen and start outdoor activities. Gularia made the remarks in a conversation with news agency PTI on Saturday. Vaccines for children may be available in India during the post-approval period by the drug regulator. If the Pfizer vaccine is approved before this, it will also be a viable option for children. Zykov-D can be applied to the Drug Controller General of India for immediate approval. 

In order to have a positive impact on children's education, schools must be started. "If the Zydos vaccine is approved, we will have one more option," Guleria said. However, most children get mild infections, he said. Also, some children do not have symptoms. However, they could be carriers of the infection, he said, adding that the epidemic has had a devastating effect on children's education in the last two years. So that schools will have to reopen. Vaccination will play an important role in this. This would be a great way to fight the epidemic. 

A national expert group has been formed to review corona infections in children, requiring 25 to 26 million doses to find new ways to deal with the epidemic and strengthen its readiness. Policy Commission member Dr. VVK on the issue of vaccination of children. Paul Lee recently said the group is not small. My estimate is that the number of children between the ages of 12 and 18 is about 13 to 14 million. For this we will need 25 to 26 crore doses. The government recently reported that the coronavirus is not so deadly to children so far. However, if isolated strains of the virus come out, covid cases may increase. However, we are already prepared to face any such situation.
