Govt Panel Wants Covishield Dose Gap To Be Increased To 12-16 Weeks

As India runs short of vaccines, the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization has recommended extending the Covishield dose-gap to 12-16 weeks. It also advised lab-tested COVID-19 patients to defer from vaccination for six months after recovering. Besides, it said the pregnant women will be allowed to choose between the two vaccines and lactating ones can get vaccinated anytime after delivery. Meanwhile, there are no updates for Covaxin.
