That’s why millions of families in the country want the protection of the vaccine for their children. Schools have also opened in most cities and villages, so the need for vaccination of children has increased. Soon 3 vaccines will be available for children.

That is, according to the age of the child, you have many options for getting the vaccine.

Everything you need to know about vaccination for children

There will be many questions in your mind regarding the vaccination of children. Would you like to know how many doses of which vaccine will be administered? Where will this vaccine be installed and is it free or will you have to pay for it? If you have this information, then it will be easier for you to choose the vaccine for your children. We give you information about all three vaccines one by one so that you get the answer to every question.

Indigenous vaccine is Corbevax

Corbevax is an indigenous vaccine, which has been prepared by Hyderabad-based company Biological-E Limited. Two doses of Corbevax will be applied and there will be a gap of 28 days between them. Corbevax is considered a vaccine with very few side effects i.e. it is safe for children. This vaccine will be provided free of cost in government hospitals, although private hospitals can charge for it. In March this year, Corbevax was approved for children in the age group of 12 to 15. Now this vaccine can also be administered to children above 5 years of age.

Children above 6 years will get Covaccine

After Corbevax comes the number of Covaccine. Covaccine is also an indigenous vaccine. It has been prepared by Bharat Biotech. Children above 6 years will be given two doses, between which there will be a gap of 28 to 40 days. This vaccine is also safe and effective for children. If you get this vaccine in a government hospital, then you will not have to pay a single penny, but in a private hospital you will have to pay the price.

Children above the age of 12 will get Zycov-D

The Zycov-D vaccine will be administered to children above 12 years of age. It is different from other vaccines. The rest of the vaccine is administered through syringes, while the help of Pharma Jet Applicator will be taken to apply Zycov-D. Due to this, the person getting the vaccine will have much less pain. Many children are afraid of needle ie injection. Zycov-D vaccine can remove the fear of such children. Two doses of Zycov-D vaccine will also be given. The second dose will be given 28 days after the first dose.

This year is very important for the vaccination of children

This year is very important in terms of vaccination of children in the country. On January 3, 2022, the vaccination started for children aged 15 to 18 years. The campaign to vaccinate children above 12 years of age started on 16 March 2022. On 26 April 2022, the vaccine was also approved for children aged 5 to 12 years. With the approval of these vaccines, crores of children in the country will get a protective cover.

There are so many children in the country

There are currently more than 20 crore children in the age group of 5 to 12 years in the country, while there are more than 17 crore 50 lakh children in the age group of 6 to 12 years. Now these children will also be vaccinated and they will also be able to compete with the corona in a better way. The country is progressing very fast and strongly in the fight against Corona. The speed and scope of vaccination in India is better than many developed countries of the world.

More than 800 million adults have received the vaccine

So far, both doses of the vaccine have been administered to more than 800 million adults in the country. More than 4 crore children in the age group of 15 to 18 years have been fully vaccinated, while more than 37 lakh children of 12 to 15 years have been given both doses of the vaccine. Apart from this, booster doses have also been given to more than 2 crore 69 lakh people. A total of more than one billion 87 crore doses of vaccine have been administered in India. This figure is more than the population of one and a half hundred countries of the world and this data of vaccination is increasing every minute.

The greatest danger if the vaccine is not vaccinated

Medical experts believe that in any wave of the epidemic, those people who have not been vaccinated are most at risk. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 used to fall in this circle. Generally, the immunity of young children is better than that of older people. Still, there was an apprehension among the people that what would happen if their children got infected with corona or if some dangerous variant spread. Now this worry of his will also go away.
