SII CEO Adar Poonavalla said that based on sufficient data, the booster vaccine is a proven strategy for high levels of antibodies. Further, Poonawala said that Govt vaccines for children above 3 years of age will be introduced in the next 6 months.
“It has been two years since the outbreak of the epidemic and India is now better prepared to deal with it. The Government of India has taken continuous steps to improve the healthcare system and improve hospital beds, oxygen and adequate facilities,” said Adar Poonawalla.
