🔴 While most of the Covid-19 vaccines available now are given in two doses, with a couple of single-shot ones too, ZyCoV-D will be given in three doses, with an interval of 28 days between the first, second and and third shots. Two doses of the vaccine seem to be enough to prevent people from developing severe symptoms of Covid-19 and to prevent death, while three doses keep even moderate symptoms at bay, according to trial data.
🔴 Unlike other vaccines approved in India till now, ZyCoV-D is to be administered in children above 12 years age, apart from adults. Trials for the vaccine were also conducted among children of ages 12 years and 18 years who constituted at least a thousand of the total number of participants.
🔴 Also, no needle is used while administering the jabs to the beneficiaries. Instead, a spring-powered device delivers the shot as a narrow, precise stream of fluid that penetrates the skin. more
