Taking a serious note of other COVID vaccines being administered to the eligible children population, Bharat Biotech has urged health workers to give only Covaxin.
In a statement, Bharat Biotech has said, “We have received several reports of other COVID vaccines being administered to children in the age group of 15-18 years. We request healthcare workers to be vigilant and ensure that only Covaxin is administered to them.”
“Covaxin received approval based on thorough clinical trial evaluation for safety and immunogenicity in the 2-18 years age group. Currently it is the only COVID 19 vaccine in India approved for children,” the company said.
