COVID vaccination: No scientific evidence in India underlines need for booster dose, says ICMR's Dr Panda

Many experts have recommended booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in India, especially for those with comorbidities or healthcare workers as they have already received both doses. But according to the government sources, the Centre is right now focusing on maximum coverage of full vaccination under the 'Har Ghar Dastak' program. Dr Samiran Panda who is the head of the Epidemiology and Infectious diseases division at the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said that right now the scientific evidence from within the country does not underline the need for a booster dose.
