New Delhi: India is soon going to get a single dose vaccine for the war with Corona. Actually, the Drug Controller of India (DCGI) has given permission for the third phase trial of the Russian-made Sputnik Light vaccine in India. Importantly, this is a single-dose vaccine, which will not require a second dose followed by a single dose, that is, only one dose will suffice. Currently, all vaccines in India require two doses.
The permission by the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) to test the Sputnik Lite vaccine on Indian people has also paved the way for finding another weapon to fight strongly against Corona. The Subject Expert Committee (SEC) on Corona had recommended allowing the trial of Sputnik Light.
In July, the recommendation to allow emergency use of the Sputnik Lite vaccine was rejected by the subject expert committee of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO). The committee had said that the vaccine has not been tested on the Indian population, so it cannot be allowed.
