WHO approves use of AstraZeneca vaccine

New Delhi: The World Health Organization (WHO) has given the green signal for widespread use of the vaccine produced by Oxford / AstraZeneca to combat the coronavirus. The approval of the WHO panel comes at a time when questions have been raised in South Africa about the effect of the vaccine.

The World Health Organization (WHO) panel said on Wednesday that AstraZeneca's Corona vaccine is safe and effective and should be used on a large scale. It should also be used in countries where the Corona variant of South Africa has reduced the effects of the vaccine. The WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) stated that two doses of the vaccine are required and should be given at intervals of 8 to 12 weeks. The panel also said that the vaccine is safe for those 65 and older.

SAGE chief Alejandro Craviotto said that questions have arisen in countries like South Africa regarding the effect of the AstraZeneca vaccine, but the use of the vaccine should not be banned in these countries. New variants of the coronavirus have been found here, against which the effect of the vaccine has been seen less, but there is no reason to stop this vaccine in these countries.
