Who is eligible for a BOOSTER dose?
Health and frontline workers, and those above 60 years of age with co-morbidities will be eligible to get the ‘precaution dose’ or booster shot. Union Health Ministry had earlier said that the senior citizens with co-morbidities will not be required to produce a doctor’s certificate or prescription at the time of administration of precaution dose However, precaution dose will be administered with a gap of nine months after the second dose.
The government has already stated that the ‘precaution dose’ will be the same as the first and second doses of the vaccine. Those who received Covaxin will continue to receive Covaxin, and those who received Covishield will continue to receive Covishield.
Why is a booster dose of vaccine required?
The COVID-19 vaccinations are still effective at decreasing the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, but the CDC has discovered that their protection against mild to moderate disease diminishes with time. A booster injection, according to studies, not only extends immunity but also helps to widen and improve your immune response, especially against variations like omicron.
When should I take a booster shot?
The time between the second and third doses of the COVID-19 vaccine referred to known as a “precaution dosage,” is expected to be 9 to 12 months for both Covisheild and Covaxin vaccinations.
