Children can get the vaccine by next year
Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said that we are very cautious about the children’s vaccine and it will proceed only with the advice of experts, but according to my knowledge, a committee has given approval, the further process is progressing rapidly. At present, the government does not want to take any decision on children in a hurry and after seeing everything, a decision will be taken. It is expected that from next year healthy children can get the vaccine. At the same time, comorbid children can get it earlier.
