Kerala High Court allows Covishield second shot after 28 days in Pvt sector

In a major decision, the Kerala High Court on Monday ruled that the second dose of Covishield can be administered 28 days of taking the first dose in the private sector, but this time frame will not be applicable to the free supply of vaccines.

The  High court mentioned that there have been exemptions given to the current 84 day period between the two doses to those officials who go for meetings and to students who are studying abroad, and therefore, it is not fair to delay it as the vaccines have been already bought by companies.

After giving the first dose, according to the Centre, the second dose could be given only after 84 days, which was contested by Kitex Group, which pointed out that since they have already purchased the vaccines and if the administration is going to be delayed, then the vaccines could get spoiled and would have to be thrown away.

On Monday, the Central government strongly opposed this, but the court overruled their objections, pointing out that while already there have been exemptions given to officials and students, it is not fair to delay the second dose to the employees and it can be given. It, however, pointed out this 28 day period will not be available in the free supply quota of the government.
