To beat Corona, the vaccination campaign is being run rapidly in the country. Now a mixed dose of corona vaccine can also be included in this campaign soon. According to the report of a leading daily, the Indian government has given permission for scientific testing to include mixed doses of the vaccine in the vaccination program.
According to the report, in the meeting of the Expert Working Committee (SEC), permission has been given for trials on a mixed dose of Covaxin of Serum Institute and Covaxin of Bharat Biotech. Simultaneously, trials have also been allowed on Bharat Biotech’s nasal vaccine and mixed-dose covaxin given through syringes.A senior member of the Expert Working Committee has told that in many countries of the world, two different vaccine doses are being given to the same person. He further informed that a proposal was also received from the experts of CMC Vellore regarding mixed dosage. It has now been allowed to be tested. He has expressed hope that after getting good results of this trial in the coming days, it will be included in the vaccination. He also told that this entire process may take three to four months.
The committee member further stated that no adverse effects have been reported from the combination of Covishield and Covaxin. Therefore, it is quite expected that even in scientific tests, two different vaccines made of coronavirus and adenovirus will show the same effect in the same body. In addition to Covishield and Covaxin, the Russian corona vaccine Sputnik-V and Moderna vaccine have also been approved for use in India.
