Prime Minister Narendra Modi recommended a “Precaution dose/third dose of vaccine” for Indian healthcare & frontline workers. It starts from January 10 as nations prepare for Covid outbreaks caused by the Omicron strain of the Coronavirus.

The word “Precaution dose” alludes to the third dose of Covid-19 vaccination given to fully vaccinated individuals. However, Prime Minister Modi avoided using the “Booster dose”, often known. Official sources estimate that the second and third doses of the Covid-19 vaccination will be 9-12 months.

What is a COVID-19 booster or third dose vaccine

A COVID booster shot/third dose vaccine is an extra dose of a vaccination administered after the first injection(s)’ protection has started to wane over time. For example, after your immunity from the initial dose(s) begins to diminish, you’ll usually need a booster shot.

After two vaccination doses, individuals with weak immune systems may not generate sufficient pro. Thus, an extra dosage may enhance their resistance to the new Coronavirus.

FAQs

1. Who is eligible for the Covid-19 booster dose? 

PM Modi has proposed a booster dosage for healthcare and frontline personnel and the at-risk population. It includes senior citizens with comorbidities.

2. Is it necessary for your booster shot to meet the dose you got at first? Is it possible to mix and match?

The Food And Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers Of Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) also allowed the use of heterologous (or “Mix and match”) booster doses for persons above 18. In addition to all three presently approved vaccinations. So, in essence, you have the option of selecting whatever vaccination you get as a booster dosage depending on what is available to you. The known and prospective advantages of getting a different vaccination as a booster dose exceed the public’s possible hazards of mixing and matching individuals now eligible for boosters.

3. Is there any risk in obtaining a second dose of vaccine?

The CDC looked into what occurred when some persons got a second dose of COVID-19 vaccination. The effects’ severity was usually mild or moderate, consistent with prior dosages. The results of the increased dosage were, if anything, a little milder.
