The third wave of COVID-19 has recently brought the Omicron variant into India. Medical professionals report that this variant is far more contagious than the previous Delta variant. Therefore, the Government of India has issued the administration of a precautionary/booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine from 10th January 2022.
PharmEasy has been actively involved with vaccinations since the first drive. Therefore once again, PharmEasy has sought to open vaccination camps in Mumbai and Delhi to support the Government’s endeavour towards securing public health. According to the governmental guidelines, people aged 60 years or more with any comorbidities can take the precaution dose with a doctor’s advice.
The third dose i.e the precaution dose of the vaccine should be the same as the previous two doses. Eg. If a person took the first two doses of Covishield, the third/precaution dose should also be of Covishield.
Why the Precaution Dose?
Scientists have found the immunity created by the first two doses is gradually fading away in most people. This is especially true for senior citizens with co-morbidities and compromised immune systems. The third dose can amp up a person’s COVID immunity.
The price of the Covishield vaccine is as per govt norms issued for private hospitals.
Eligibility Criteria of Precaution Dose
- Senior citizens (i.e., people above the age of 60) with comorbidities
- Should not be COVID positive on the day of vaccination
- They should have received the 2nd dose at least 9 months earlier
Vaccine Available: Covishield
