Vaccination in India

Vaccination campaign continues&nbsp

Vaccination campaign against corona virus is going on in the country. So far more than 35 crore doses have been taken. More than 6 crore people have also got the second dose. While there is a 28-day gap between the two doses of Covaccine, there is a gap of 84 days between the two doses of Covishield. However, sometimes due to lack of vaccine or due to other reasons, many people are not able to take the second dose on time. In such a situation, the question is that it is time for the second dose, but what should be done if the vaccine has not been received on time?

According to ‘Akashvani News’, Dr. Anjan Trikha in AIIMS has said in response to this question that the time of second dose of Kovishield has been extended, now it is being administered after 84 days. If the time for the second dose is over and due to some reason the vaccine is not administered on that day, then on the day after which the slots are found. Do not think that now it has been 100 days, so the second dose should not be given. Do take another dose.

He was asked another question that still the number of patients in ICU of government hospitals remains, what is the reason?

In response to this, he said, ‘Yes, we felt that if the pace of infection has stopped, then the cases are decreasing and the ICU beds will also be empty. In the second wave, many patients go home after getting negative treatment, but even after going home many times their heartbeat has increased, the saturation does not improve, lung infection remains. In such a situation, people first take oxygen in the hospital near the house. Still, if they do not get relief, they are admitted to the ICU of government hospitals. This virus affects not only the lungs but also many other organs. Such people are also a little older in age.
