Preparations to vaccine children in India underway due to fear of 3rd wave of Covid

Karnataka is facing highest number of Covid infections in children.

According to the recent news, India is most likely to face the 3rd wave of Covid-19. The warnings by the health officials state that this wave will affect the children.

In India, Bharat Biotech has started trials on children of three age groups as 12-18 years, 6-12 years, and 6 months-6years of age. The company is working towards getting the vaccine out as soon as possible. Internationally, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson have also conducted trials on children in the United States and Canada.

The race to vaccinate as many people as possible is going on at a rapid pace. This urgency is due to the fear of the upcoming 3rd wave of Covid-19 which is expected to begin between the months of August – October.

The news and social media have been full of articles talking about the next Covid wave. In India, there are around 150 million children that are being planned to be vaccinated. Large-scale preparations are being done to vaccinate all children as soon as possible.

There is still not enough data to prove the efficacy of the vaccines for children in India. But the vaccine companies are assuring that the vaccines are safe for children and they will need to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

The following news report from ‘India Today’ shows children getting infected from Covid-19 in the state of Karnataka.
