AstraZeneca-Oxford’s Kovid-19 vaccine has proved effective so far in the war against Corona virus in India. The Corona vaccine of AstraZeneca-Oxford University has been approved by the World Health Organization. Experts from WHO dispelled all the doubts raised about this vaccine and said that this vaccine can be used on people above 65 years of age. Also, this vaccine can also be used where new variants of Corona have emerged.
The World Health Organization’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) has issued a recommendation for when and how to use the two-dose corona vaccine. Explain that this vaccine is yet to get the approval of emergency use from WHO. The announcement by the World Health Organization comes at a time when many questions are being raised about the vaccine, whether it will be effective on older people, will it work on the new strain of Corona found in South Africa The
Alejandro Craviotto, head of the SAGE, admitted that the lack of data on the effects of the vaccine on people over 65 years of age aroused fear in many countries and led many countries to stop giving vaccines to older people. While the corona virus has affected the elderly most all over the world. However, he stated that the trial data of this vaccine make it clear that this vaccine is completely safe and effective for people 65 years of age or older.
Speaking to reporters, Craviotto said that we think this vaccine can be used on people over 18 years of age, without any upper age limit. Significantly, the use of estrogena vaccines in South Africa was stopped, as data from a small trial revealed that it was not able to prevent mild to moderate infection of new strains.
