A multi-disciplinary team comprising of doctors, public health experts and many more to get you the most updated scientifically correct information COVID 19 vaccines.
A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.

As health care systems across the country work rapidly to distribute COVID-19 vaccines as efficiently as possible, there is a lot of myth and misconception about COVID Vaccine.
Sputnik V vaccine has been given emergency use authorization in India. In India, the Russian vaccine will be produced by Dr Reddy’s Laboratories. A recent study found no strong allergies caused by Sputnik V®.
India will produce 850 million doses of the Sputnik V® vaccine every year.
In terms of efficacy, Sputnik V outshines both Covishield® and Covaxin® with 91.6 % effectiveness compared to Covishield’s nearly 90% (global reports) and Covaxin’s 81% (interim 3rd phase trial results).
DNA plasmid based COVID-19 vaccine being developed by Cadila Healthcare with support from the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council.
Zydus Cadila, focused on discovering and developing NCEs, Novel Biologicals, Biosimilars, and Vaccines, announced that its plasmid DNA vaccine to prevent COVID-19, ZyCoV-D®, has been found to be safe in a Phase I clinical trial in healthy subjects, as confirmed by the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). Zydus has begun the Phase II trial.
Biological E. Limited is conducting a prospective open label randomised Phase-I seamlessly followed by Phase-II study to assess the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of Biological E’s novel Covid-19 vaccine containing Receptor Binding Domain of SARS-CoV-2 for protection against Covid-19 disease when administered intramuscularly in a two dose schedule(0, 28D) to healthy volunteers.
An intranasal vaccine stimulates a broad immune response – neutralizing IgG, mucosal IgA, and T cell responses.
Immune responses at the site of infection (in the nasal mucosa) – essential for blocking both infection and transmission of COVID-19.
Bharat Biotech is conducting a Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Reactogenicity, Safety, and Immunogenicity of an Intranasal Adenoviral vector COVID-19 vaccine (BBV154) in Healthy Volunteers.
Indian Council of Medical Research and Serum Institute of India jointly performing a phase 2/3, observer-blind, randomized, controlled study to determine the safety and immunogenicity of COVOVAX [SARS-CoV-2 recombinant spike protein nanoparticle vaccine (SARS-CoV-2 rS) with Matrix-M1™ adjuvant] in Indian adults.
