Children in the country can get vaccine from this month

Amidst the news of the third wave of corona being more deadly for children, a good news is that the vaccine may be available for children in the country soon. The central government has indicated that the corona vaccine for children may arrive this month. According to the government, the vaccine for Zydus Cadila may be approved soon, which has also been tested on children aged 12-18 years.

NITI Aayog member Dr VK Paul said that trials have started on children of the vaccine, but it will not take long to complete, as the tests are of immunity. Whereas Zydus Cadila’s vaccine has been tested on children. Hopefully she can come for the license in the next two weeks. When approving the vaccine, a decision may also be made on whether to give it to children.
800-100 children also included in the test

Phase III trials of Zydus Cadila’s vaccine have been completed. Its trial also includes 800-100 children, aged between 12-18 years. Therefore, this vaccine is likely to be approved for children in the age group of 12-18 years as well as Paul has indicated. However, the final decision is made by an expert group based on the test data. If he applies for the license within two weeks, it will hardly take another week for the approval process. That is, the vaccine may be available this month.
