New Delhi:

The latest studies showing six months longevity of antibodies amongst Covid-19 vaccinated people raised serious concern in the health sector with experts in India suggesting a revisit of the vaccination process.

Senior health expert and President of Asian Society of Emergency Medicine, Dr Tamorish Kole said, “We knew long back immunity against SARS-CoV-2 virus maybe lasting up to 6 months.

Recently, WHO with the support of the strategic advisory group of experts (SAGE) on immunisation and its Covid-19 vaccine working group, is reviewing the current evidence on the requirement and timing of an additional vaccine dose (booster dose) for the currently available Covid-19 vaccines.
