New Delhi: India is soon to get a single dose vaccine for the war against corona. In fact, the Drug Controller of India (DCGI) has allowed the third phase of the Russian-made Sputnik Light Vaccine trial in India. The important thing is that it is a single-dose vaccine, which will not require another dose after one dose, i.e., only one dose will be sufficient. At present, two doses of all vaccines in India have to be taken.
The permission granted by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) to trial the Sputnik Light Vaccine on Indian people has also paved the way for another weapon to be found to fight strongly against corona. The Subject Expert Committee (SEC) on Corona had recommended allowing sputnik light to be trialed.
In July, a recommendation to allow emergency use of the sputnik light vaccine was rejected by the subject expert committee of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO). The committee had said that the vaccine has not been tested on the Indian population, so it cannot be allowed.
