Covid booster dose: Big news related to the booster dose of Corona has come out. The free booster dose will be given to people over the age of 18 from 15 July. This free booster dose will be used for 75 days from 15 July. This facility is provided under the Amrit Mahotsav of Independence. According to official sources, so far less than one percent of the population of 77 crores aged 18 to 59 years has received a booster dose of corona.
However, about 16 million people over the age of 60 and about 26 percent of health workers and frontline fighters have taken booster doses. The official said most of India’s population had taken their second dose 9 months ago. Studies conducted at the ICMR and other international research institutes have shown that antibody levels begin to decline within about six months after two initial doses of the vaccine, and immunity builds up after a booster dose.
Let us inform you that last week the Ministry of Health of the Union reduced the distance between the second dose and the preventive dose of Kovid vaccine for everyone from 9 months to 6 months. This was done on the recommendation of the National Technical Advisory Group on Vaccination.
Union Minister Anurag Thakur said this
The statement by EU Minister Anurag Thakur has come to the fore in this case. He said that it has been decided that all citizens over the age of 18 from the 15th of July 2022 for the next 75 days will receive free booster doses. This facility will be available at public centers. Thakur said India is celebrating 75 years of independence. On the occasion of the Amrit Kaal of Independence, it has been decided that the free booster dose will be given to citizens over the age of 18 for the next 75 days from 15 July 2022.
