No agreement on Coronavirus booster dose

New Delhi, 7/12: The risk of Omicron variant of Coronavirus has increased in the country. 23 new cases of Omicron variant have been reported in the country. After the arrival of new cases of Corona, the discussion about the booster dose of Corona Vaccine has intensified once again in the country. A meeting of the National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NTAGI) was held yesterday regarding the booster dose of Corona, but the panel of experts could not reach any conclusion. Let us inform that in the meeting of NTAGI, a decision was to be taken whether to give booster dose to people at high risk or not. An official associated with NTAGI said that no recommendation has been made by NTAGI yet. Right now our effort is to approve the vaccine for vulnerable children as soon as possible. We are hoping that some guidelines can be issued in this regard by the end of this week.

According to sources, the National Technical Advisory Group (NTAGI) for Booster Dose of Corona Vaccine has assessed the data, which shows that the risk of corona infection in the country is very high. However, some experts believe that first of all the health workers should be given a booster dose. Along with the front line workers, the elderly should also be given a booster dose, who were the first to be vaccinated. It has been a long time since all these people got the vaccine and they are more likely to get infected. An official said, NTAGI is waiting for the guidelines of the World Health Organization on this issue, only after that a decision will be taken regarding the booster dose
