No need for fourth dose of COVID-19 vaccine: If you have got three vaccines to deal with the corona epidemic, then you do not need the fourth vaccine. ICMR's expert has given this information. Based on the available evidence about Kovid-19 and its variants, Dr. Raman Gangakhedkar, former head of epidemiology and infectious diseases at the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), said that there is no need for a fourth dose of vaccine against corona.

After a program on Tuesday, Gangakhedkar said that if a person has taken three doses of anti-corona vaccine, then he need not worry because getting three vaccines means that the person has an immune response to fight the corona virus. Immune Response) has been trended 3 times.

The corona virus has not changed so much that a new vaccine is needed

Despite all the variants of corona coming, he said, "The corona virus has not changed so much that it needs a new vaccine, so people should rely on the 'T-cell' immune response.' He said, 'At present, he said,' Looking at the available evidence related to the forms of the virus, it is known that they are not so serious that a fourth vaccine is required for corona.

However, in the changing times, Gangakhedkar advised such people, who are already suffering from any disease or are elderly, to wear masks and follow the rules of Corona. He said that the fourth dose of corona should not be thought of now. Any new strain of Corona will not be similar to source COV2. Rather it can be completely new. Whenever such a form comes, then accordingly it will be thought what to do with it. He said that it is futile to worry about it now.
