Even after the corona vaccine arrives, social distancing and masking may be required. In the KGMU webinar on Kovid Management on Saturday, ICMR Director Prof. Balaram Bhargava has said this. He said that even after vaccination, we have to be careful. He said that the third phase of the vaccine trial is going on. Vaccination will begin soon, but for how long protection will be available, it is not known yet.
He said that it is not necessary that every citizen has to be vaccinated. It is important for us to break the transition chain. For this, 300 million people have been targeted for vaccination by July.
Two to three doses have to be given
Dr. Bhargava said that all the vaccine trials are going on, two to three doses of vaccine will have to be given. It will take three to four weeks. If the vaccine does not work, a booster dose may also have to be applied. However, India will not only be able to produce vaccines for 60 per cent of developing countries. There will be work in 24 manufacturing stabilization of 19 companies.
Five vaccine leads
According to Dr. Bhargava, ICMR’s India is undergoing vaccine trials with Biotech and Zydus Cadila, while Russia’s Sputnik and the US biological e-vaccine are being trialled in India in foreign vaccines.
