New Delhi, 26/12: The gap between the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine and the third, which is being called a “precaution dose”, is likely to be nine to 12 months, official sources said on Sunday.



The nitty-gritty of the gaps for the vaccines currently being used in India’s inoculation programme – Covishield and Covaxin – is being worked out, and a final decision over this will be taken soon, they said.



Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a televised address to the nation on Saturday night, announced that vaccination against Covid-19 for children between 15-18 years will start from January 3, while “precaution dose” for healthcare and frontline workers would be administered from January 10.
