What is Covaxin?

It is the first indigenous COVID-19 vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with Indian Council of Medical Research, ICMR and National Institute of Virology, NIV.

Who will get the first dose?

Australian PM Scott Morison confirmed that the government will provide the free doses of COVID-19 vaccine to its entire population.

EU and USA want to stock the vaccine, developed by them or making preorder to other countries. This is called Vaccine Nationalism, when one country wants to store all the developed vaccine for its population only.

China had already developed its vaccine and used it for its armed forces.

Russia, who has become the first country that gives approval for the COVID-19 vaccine distribution, is going to give first doses to doctors and then to teachers after that to the infected covaxin side effects in india .

What’s the role of WHO?

Here, WHO warned against the stockpiling of COVID vaccine. Otherwise, it will not be available for the poor countries in African and Asian continents. Distribution of the vaccine should be done to serve mankind equally.

It has given a tentative plan of Strategic Allocation of coronavirus vaccine. it should be given first to:

  • Health workers
  • Adults older than 65
  • Other high-risk adults with comorbidities (such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease.

India’s Stand on covaxin side effects in india:

As per the speech of Indian PM Narendra Modi that government will follow a road map for vaccine distribution and will supply it to the Indian population in the shortest time.

Government has set up National Expert Group that will set up the principle for prioritization of groups for covaxin side effects in india.

ICMR had said first dose of vaccine will be given to the health workers and covid worriers.

ACIP committee has suggested the Tier system for vaccine distribution:

Tier I: healthcare and national security workers those are at high risk are about 12 million will get the first dose

Tier II: supply chain workers with three subgroups are about 110 million

Tier III: General population of 206 million.

Besides, the overall road map by government, Indian general population will get the vaccine not before 2021covaxin side effects in india . There are various speculation about the vaccination priorities like rich and politicians will get vaccinated first, after that it will come to poor.

Therefore it will take a long time for us to get the right vaccine for the general population. Still, there is a hope, at least our corona worriers will get the vaccine first.
