Booster dose trials will be conducted on 3 thousand people in the country. The results of this trial will decide whether all people will get a booster dose or not.
The central government has started a study to find out the essentiality of booster doses, which will include people who took the second dose of the vaccine six months ago.
The study is being conducted by the Department of Biotechnology’s Translational Health Science and Technology Institute. This will cover CovShield, Covaccine and Sputnik V vaccines.
Samples will be taken from Delhi-NCR, Gurugram and Faridabad for the study.
