Children in India will likely be vaccinated with the Covovax coronavirus vaccine, and not Covishield, Serum Institute CEO Adar Poonawalla told NDTV Tuesday afternoon.
“Not Covishield… Covovax should be available in six months. (The) trials are on… no safety issues so far. We have gone down to the age of seven (with) good results…” Mr Poonawalla said.
“Our approach for vaccinating children will be with Covovax – the new vaccine awaiting licencing in India and (this) should be done soon. Our approach (will be) to vaccinate children right down to the age of two with Covovax,” he said.
