To protect the people from viruses like Coronavirus and Omicron in delhi there have been made rules which people are supposed to follow in order to prevent the spread of virus.
People need to now strictly follow covid rules like wearing masks , using sanitizers, maintain social distancing, not go out of house unless it is absolutely necessary, take regular covid taste and take vaccination as fast as possible.
The companies said Tuesday that they started submitting their formal application “following a request” from the FDA, which seemingly wants to get the process moving quickly.In a tweet soon after the announcement, the FDA said it will hold a meeting in two weeks, on February 15, to consider the request.
“Having a safe and effective vaccine available for children in this age group is a priority for the agency,” said interim FDA head Janet Woodcock, who added that the FDA asked for the application “in light of the recent Omicron surge.”
The companies are seeking authorization for only two doses of their vaccine, but believe a third will be needed “to achieve high levels of protection against current and potential future variants,” Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement.
Along with this a booster dose which is also like a vaccine is going on.The booster dose is an extra precautionary dose made for those people who have high chances of getting corona .
This is the reason why they will be given to health workers, front line workers and immuno comprised seniors . This dose of booster will be starting from today as covid number spikes in the country driven by Omicron.
About 5.75 crore people are eligible for the third doses in the ongoing drive — 2.75 crore above the age of 60, 1 crore healthcare workers and 2 crore frontline workers.
The health ministry has said there is no need to register for the precautionary vaccine doses. Those eligible can directly take an appointment or walk into any vaccination centre. There is no decision yet on booster doses for all adults.
