Corona Vaccination (indicative picture)
The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Vaccine Advisory Group has recommended that people with weakened immune systems should take an additional dose of all WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccines. Rapid vaccination is being done in many countries around the world to fight Coronavirus. But over time, cases of vaccines being less effective are also coming to the fore, due to which health experts have advocated for people to apply the third dose of the vaccine.
The United Nations Health Agency’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Vaccination says, ‘People with moderate and severely weakened immune systems should be given additional doses of vaccine, because these people have been given the vaccine after vaccination. There is a possibility of getting less response. Also, these people are at risk of getting caught by COVID-19 disease. Since the corona virus first appeared in 2019 in Wuhan city of China, this virus has spread all over the world and to avoid it, vaccination is being done on a war footing.
CDC endorses additional doses of vaccine
Earlier in September, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed giving additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to millions of elderly people and others vulnerable to infection. This move will start a new phase of the US vaccination campaign against infection. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Valensky signed off on the recommendations of a committee of advisors. Advisors say that people aged 65 years and above, nursing home dwellers and those in the age group of 50 to 64 years experiencing health problems should be given additional doses.
J&J seeks approval for booster dose
Johnson & Johnson last week asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve additional doses of its COVID-19 vaccine, as the US government launched a campaign to give booster doses to the millions of American citizens who have received the vaccine. It’s on. J&J said it has urged the FDA to authorize the company to administer booster doses to people who had previously received the company’s single-dose vaccine. The company said it has submitted data on different booster intervals, which are spaced between two and six months, but has not formally recommended any one booster interval to the regulator.
