A few days later in India, people over the age of two may also get the Corona vaccine, as the Expert Committee recommended Bharat Biotech’s Corona vaccine ‘CoVLP Vaccine‘ to be tested for people in the age group of 2(two) to 18(Eighteen) for Phase II and III. This information was given by the sources.
After the trial, the indigenous vaccine will be the first such vaccine in India that will be given to children. Currently the vaccines Covishield and CoVLP Vaccine manufactured in India are being applied to people over 18 years of age. Recently, Russia’s vaccine Sputnik V has also received permission for emergency use in India.
CoVLP Vaccine Trial for 2 – 18 Years Old
Covaxin was recommended by the Covid-19 Subject Expert Committee of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO). The committee deliberated on the application made by Bharat Biotech requesting permission for Phase II and Phase III testing to assess the safety and immunity of children in the 2-18 age groups of their vaccines.
CoVLP Vaccine Trial Phase 2
Recently, Bharat Biotech founder Dr. Krishna Ella, spoke about testing on children for the first phase of covaxin. During this time, he explained that “We had permission from the Drugs Controller General to conduct the test in 2–18 years. The tests may take 3-4 months to complete.” Let us know that in addition to covaxin, the Pfizer vaccine has already been approved for children between the ages of 12 and 15 years.
He said that ‘many children become infected with the virus and do not show any symptoms. They visit their grandparents and infect them. Also, if children get sick and their lungs get damaged, they are going to face a lot of problems in the future. I think so. Young children should be vaccinated as soon as possible.
