Booster dose allowed for 18+ from April 10 Vaccine costs at Rs.225

The booster dose of the Govt vaccine will be given to people over the age of 18 in private hospitals across the country from today.

Although the corona infection has subsided, it has not yet completely disappeared. So far there have been many variants of the corona virus. Currently, there is a lot of talk about the XE variant.

In this case, people over the age of 18 are allowed to give the first booster dose today. That means adults can now go to a private center and get the booster dose vaccine. Once the first and second doses of the vaccine have been injected, the same vaccine can be given as a booster dose or as a precautionary dose.

At the same time, those who received the second dose vaccine 9 months ago are only eligible for this third vaccine. That is, anyone over the age of 18 who is 9 months old after receiving the second dose will be considered eligible for the booster dose.

However, with the exception of the first and second doses at government centers, health workers, leading personnel and those over 60 will receive the same precautionary measures as before.

Vaccine companies cut prices

Vaccine makers have reduced the price of vaccines after negotiations with the central government before giving a third dose to people between the ages of 18 and 59 in private hospitals.

Private hospitals now offer both Covishield and Covaxin at Rs 225 per dose. As per the instructions of the Central Government, private hospitals can charge a service charge of up to Rs.150 along with the cost of a single dose of the vaccine. In this case, people between the ages of 18 and 59 who have been vaccinated with the third dose will have to pay a maximum of Rs 375 for the third dose in private hospitals.

So far, private hospitals have been paying between Rs 700 and Rs 750 for Covishield and Rs 1250 to Rs 1,300 for Novavax.

According to the Union Ministry of Health, 185.68 crore doses of the vaccine have been given in the country so far. In India, 96% of people over the age of 15 have taken at least one dose.

At the same time, about 2.5 crore people have also received precautionary drugs. Similarly, 45% of children between the ages of 12 and 14 in the country have already been vaccinated with the first dose.

The booster dose is no longer available to people over the age of 18 at many private hospitals such as Fortis and Max. Meanwhile, the facility at Apollo Hospital will be operational from Monday, April 11th.

This is called an additional dose of corona vaccine, precautionary dose or booster dose. It is noteworthy that this dose is effective in boosting the immunity of the population against the corona virus
