BETTER ANTIBODY PRODUCTION WHEN GAP BETWEEN 1st & 2nd DOSES of VACCINE JABS IS INCREASED::
Covishield and Covaxine were released for Vacination with a gap of a few weeks. Bothe the vaccines were advised to be taken in 2 doses at a gap of 4 weeks. Then suddenly the expansion of vaccination of Age groups were announced. Then we witnessed a rush for Vaccine taking, clearly creating a Supply Demand imbalance.
Just then ICMR & Indian Government announced that Covishield needed a gap of 4-6 weeks between the doses for better Antibody production and good effectivity. Susequently it was increasd to 8 and 12 weeks Gaps saying that the trials that are still going on the Volunteers and had shown such facts.
If only this finding appears on headlines it will have a good impact and may ease the Supply Crisis. more
Increasing the gaps between two jabs is illogical from scientific angle but well suited from political expediency angle more
As long there are no side effects after 2nd dose, we may wait patiently and keep going with SOP against Covid. more
Yes Satyapal Ratti Sir, the virologists have said that to develope a Vaccine it takes time as long as 6/7 years. Dedicated Scientists & Virologists from the world including from India have achieved succesfuly to produce this Vaccine in a Record short time of less than a year. And Indian scientists and Manufacturers participating in a well Praisworthy manner. Let us see where do we head from here. more
Yes, we all are in the learning phase. Results/effects of the vaccines are announced as and when they are available, generally through the statements made by renowned medical doctors. Since new knowledge is collected almost every day, old stats lose their credibility. more
"evolving science" after more than 4cr have taken the second dose. A good price to pay. Probably those who have taken the 2nd dose will be asked to take a 3rd dose once the vaccine manufacturers have surplus stocks and don't know how to dispose it. Just guessing. For, after WHO's post one year Wuhan outbreak visit, there are no further updates. more
Thank you, Mr. Daniel. more
