How accurate is it to mix two different corona vaccines? Central government gave this answer

Should two corona vaccines be mixed? Questions keep arising about this. Now the answer has come from the central government regarding this. It said that the picture in this matter will be clear when we have more data related to it. Renu Swarup, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology in the Central Government said this. He also informed that some studies have been started on the mixing of Covid 19 vaccine at the Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu.

The picture will be clear after more figures come

Renu Swarup said that DCGI has given permission to CMC Vellore to start the trial of mixing the vaccine. Some studies have also been started in this regard. He told news agency ANI that although the matter will be more clear only when we have more scientific data related to it. Significantly, the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) had accepted a proposal of CMC Vellore in August. According to this, there was a matter of research to mix one dose each of co-vaccine and coveshield. Then NITI Aayog member Dr VK Paul had said that permission has been given in this regard.

The test is being done on 300 volunteers

About 300 volunteers are involved in this study. All of them are being given a mixed dose of co-vaccine and Coveshield. The purpose of this research is to find out that if a person is given two doses of two different vaccines of the corona, then he will be completely safe from this disease or not. When this research was approved by DGCI, at the same time ICMR had told that mixing co-vaccine and Coveshield can give better results. Significantly, there is continuous research going on around the world regarding the mixture of vaccines. A study by Oxford University has found that the vaccine mixture of AstraZeneca and Pfizer Biotech is giving better results against this epidemic.

ICMR has already done work on it

It is also necessary to mention here that the study of ICMR was actually done on the basis of a mistake. It happened that in Siddharthnagar district of Uttar Pradesh, 18 people had mistakenly got both doses of different vaccines. Coveshield was applied as the first dose to them. After 18 days, he got the second dose, but it was a dose of co-vaccine. Later ICMR did a study on these 18 people. It was revealed that the combination of Kovishield and co-vaccine improved the immune system. It was also told that even if both doses of the same vaccine are used, even then such a better immune system is not formed.
