New Delhi: Government on Wednesday clarified that the widened gap between two Covid vaccines has been taken in a transparent manner based on scientific data.
Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan tweeted clarifying government decision amid concerns that the intervals were widened – from six-eight weeks to 12-16 – without the support of the scientific group, NDTV reported.
“The decision to increase the gap between administering two doses of Covishield has been taken in a transparent manner based on scientific data. India has a robust mechanism to evaluate data. It is unfortunate that such an important issue is being politicised!” the Health Minister tweeted.
