Ahead Of Covid Vaccine Rollout, Centre Sends Rulebook To States
2 days to choose the rollout of the Covid vaccines, the Centre circulated the dos and do n’ts for vaccination to the states this evening. The rollout on Saturday is expected to cover 3 lakh healthcare employees across 3,006 websites across the country.
Vaccination is enabled just for those who are above the age of 18 years, the Centre said. Women who are pregnant or not sure of their pregnancy and lactating moms should not get the vaccine.
The Centre also said that interchangeability of vaccine is not permitted. The second dosage of the vaccine need to also be of the one that was administered as first dosage.
Both vaccines cleared by the country’s drug regulator– Serum Institute’s Covishield and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin– are two-dose vaccines which have actually to be administered at a 28- day gap.
There is also a strict protocol for individuals who contracted the virus.
Vaccination will have to be deferred for four to 8 weeks after healing of clients with active Covid signs, those who have been offered plasma therapy, and those who are weak and hospitalized for any other factor.
