Time Gap, Vaccine

While responding to Kerala High Court seeking response from the Central Government surrounding the increase in time gap between two doses of vaccines to 84 days, the government has contented that the said increase in time gap was implemented owing to recommendation that the same would bring better efficacy. The case sprang out of a plea filed by Kitex Garments Ltd., seeking permission to administer the second dose to their employees before completion of 84 Days. The company was getting their employees vaccinated but could not complete the second dose owing to the increase in time gap. The Government submitted that the time gap between the two jabs was extended based on a recommendation given by NEGVAC (National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration for COVID-19), that the same would render better protection against the virus.
