Vaccine to children: vaccine trials on children from 2 to 15 years of age will soon start

Experts have feared that the third wave of corona in the country is about to enter the stage. Most children are expected to come in its grip. The government has started preparations to deal with this. In view of this, the Expert Committee of the drug regulator DCGI has allowed the trial of vaccine on children between 2 and 15 years. Now DCGI’s final approval is awaited.

Sanjiv Sinha, a doctor of the Department of Medicine at AIIMS, said that recently, Bharat Biotech has received a vaccine trial for children between 2 and 15 years old. It has been given by DCGI’s Subject Expert Committee. We await DCGI approval. It is expected that the second and third phase will start soon.

Vaccine will be applied after the success of the trial
This suggests that children will have to wait a little longer for the vaccine. The reason is that the vaccine will be given to all children only after the success of the trial. Let us know that two vaccines are being installed in the country right now. These include covaccin and covichelid. It is being applied more than 18 years of age.

Why are children not getting vaccinated?
Experts say that it can be applied to children. But, it is necessary to have a trial. Right now these vaccine children are not being employed only because the children were not included in the clinical trial. It has been tested on people over 16 years of age. Given this, the World Health Organization (WHO) has advised children under 16 years of age not to apply corona vaccine.

Children in danger in the third wave
The second wave of Corona has engulfed the children as well. Therefore, the need for vaccine use and trial has increased for children as well.

This has predicted the greatest danger to children. This is also one of the reasons why the government wants to get ready for this in advance. By the time the third wave arrives, most adults in the country will have at least had their first dose of Corona vaccine. Because of this, they will be safer than children.
