Corona Vaccine: Need to give both doses instead of a booster dose

Corona Vaccine: Essential protection against infection is yet to be found. Therefore, instead of giving booster doses of the corona vaccine, priority should be given to giving both doses to the beneficiaries.

Immunity scientist Vineeta Bal said that we have a large population below 18 years of age. Unless these are vaccinated, it is redundant to suggest a uniform policy for a second or third dose. He said that mass vaccination in India has started only in March 2021. We must focus on giving both doses of the vaccine to all the beneficiaries in India.

Satyajit Rath of the National Institute of Immunology said that recent studies are beginning to show a difference in duration and immunity protection. That’s why I can’t make a hasty conclusion about booster doses based on these data.
