Healthcare employees, folks aged above 65 shall be given precedence for COVID vaccine: Harsh Vardhan 

The Greater India , Nov 19, 2020

Noting that it’s pure to prioritise COVID-19 vaccine distribution, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Thursday mentioned healthcare employees and folks aged above 65 shall be early recipients when a vaccine turns into out there. Addressing a webinar organised by the FICCI FLO on ‘The Shifting Healthcare Paradigm During and Post-Covid’, Vardhan mentioned COVID-19 vaccine shall be out there within the subsequent few months and it’s estimated that by July-August 400-500 million doses shall be made out there for 25-30 crore folks.

“It is natural the vaccine distribution would have to be prioritised. As you know the healthcare workers who are corona warriors they will be prioritised, then people who are above 65 years of age they have been prioritised, then those from 50-65 years of age have been prioritised,” he mentioned.

“Then those below 50 years who have other diseases. It is all being decided by experts with a scientific point of view. We have made a very detailed, meticulous plan on this. What we would have to do in March-April next year, we have started planning for it from now only,” Vardhan added.

The minister mentioned one can shield oneself from this lethal virus with small precautions like sporting a superb high quality masks correctly, sustaining social distance and taking good care of hand-hygiene.

India’s coronavirus caseload mounted to 89,58,483 on Thursday with 45,576 infections being reported in a day, whereas the demise toll climbed to 1,31,578 with 585 new fatalities.

The phase-Three trial of the Oxford vaccine of the Serum Institute is nearly close to completion, whereas the phase-Three scientific trial of the indigenously-developed vaccine candidate of the Bharat Biotech and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has already began.

Dr Reddy’s Laboratories will quickly begin the mixed phase-2 and phase-Three scientific trials of the Russian COVID-19 vaccine, Sputnik V, in India. Also, the Biological E Limited has began early phases 1 and a couple of human trials of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate.

Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE mentioned their vaccine candidate was discovered to be greater than 95 per cent efficient in stopping COVID-19, whereas Moderna on Monday mentioned its vaccine candidate in opposition to COVID-19 discovered it to have an efficacy of 94.5 per cent.
