Both are important weapons to prevent epidemics. 1.65 crore doses of Covishield and Covacin are currently being given to the States as well as the Union Territories. States as well as Union Territories have been asked to vaccinate 100 people a day with 10 per cent dose reserve.

Covishield vaccine and covacin will cost Rs 200-295 in India.The government has so far procured 16 million doses. These include covishield and covexin. Initial doses will be given to health workers.

The Ministry of Health has written a letter to the states saying that the dose of corona vaccine should be given only to people above 18 years of age. It also said the vaccine would not be replaced. That means both doses will seem to belong to the same company.

The Ministry of Health has also given information about mild side effects after giving both vaccines. Pain may occur at the injection site after injection of Covishield. It can also cause headaches and fatigue.

Headache,fever,fatigue,abdominal pain and vomiting may occur after a dose of Covexin.Pregnant women and children are not currently vaccinated.This is because the vaccine has not been tested on women and children at any stage.
