Geneva: Many countries are preparing to give a second dose (booster dose) to those who receive two doses of the vaccine to combat the delta variant of the corona virus. Many countries in Europe have started giving booster doses. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has requested that the booster dose be discontinued until at least September.
Rich countries are currently at the forefront of Kovid vaccination. Such countries account for a large percentage of the total wax produced in the world. In poorer countries, the rate of vaccination is much lower. This gap has been pointed out several times by the World Health Organization. He also called on rich countries to be prepared to help poor countries.
World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Athanasius has called on all rich countries to give booster doses after vaccinating at least 10 percent of the population.
‘I understand the vigilance of countries in protecting their people from the Delta variety. However, it is not acceptable for countries around the world to re-use a large share of the vaccine. An urgent reconsideration is needed in this regard. There should be a situation where the majority of the vaccine is available to poor countries, ”he said.
Germany has announced that it will give a booster dose in September to those in the Kovid High Risk category. The UAE has announced that high-risk people who take the second vaccine can take the booster dose three months later and others six months later. A booster dose campaign has been launched in Israel for those over 60.
