Telangana court has directed news portal The Wire to take down 14 articles it had published on its website on biotechnology company Bharat Biotech, which manufactures Covid-19 vaccine Covaxin.
The Covid vaccines (Covaxin and Covishield) will be available at Clinics and Hospitals for sale, as per the latest approval given by the DCGI.
In a big relief for parents, the Subject Expert Committee on Covid-19 has granted emergency use approval to Bharat Biotech's Covaxin for children in the 2-18 years age group.
India plans to test a combination of its own Covid-19 vaccine, Covaxin, and a prospective intranasal vaccine developed by US researchers, in the hopes of boosting the two vaccines' protective effectiveness against the virus.
According to the NIH, the findings show that the vaccine generates antibodies that successfully neutralize the B.1.1.7 (Alpha) and B.1.617 (Delta) forms of SARS-CoV-2, which were initially discovered in the UK and India, respectively.
