Dr Harsh Vardhan – Union Health Minister:
COVISHIELD from Serum Institute India and COVAXIN from Bharat Biotech are the only 2 COVID19 Vaccines approved for emergency use in India.
More COVID19 vaccines will be made available in the future as & when they get regulatory approval.
The Subject Expert Committee thoroughly analysed and evaluated data from clinical trials and has found that both COVISHIELD and COVAXIN generate adequate immunogenicity.
It is recommended that everyone should complete their COVID Vaccine course and get both shots of the same vaccine.
