PM Modi gave the first dose of COVAXIN, what is the characteristics of this indigenous vaccine and why there was controversy?

The second phase of corona vaccination has started from across the country from today and it has been launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PM Modi got the corona vaccine on Monday morning at AIIMS Delhi. In this, along with those who are 60 years, Corona vaccine will be given to those between 45 and 59 years, who are suffering from serious diseases. PM Modi has been given the first dose of Indigenous Vaxony COVAXIN developed by Bharat Biotech. P Niveda, a nurse from Puducherry, has given PM Modi a dose of covicin. Let's know what are the characteristics of this vaccine made in the country.

The first phase clinical trial of this biotech vaccine of Bharat Biotech ended in September last year, the results of which were made public in December. However, there were also controversies regarding this vaccine and questions were raised on the reliability of COVAXIN. The opposition had raised questions on COVAXIN and rejected the approval given by its emergency use. After this, doctors at Delhi's Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital refused to install indigenous Kovacsin. Some Congress leaders had alleged that the vaccine was approved in a hurry. Now PM Modi has tried to put an end to the controversy by putting the vaccine on it.

How does the vaccine work?

This country vaccine is different from the vaccines of other companies. In collaboration with ICMR, Indian Council of Medical Research, Bharat Biotech has added a power booster to this vaccine. This power booster has an important role in increasing the immunity of humans. People will be able to stay safe from corona epidemic for a longer time than other vaccines.

According to media reports, aluminum hydroxide has been used as an adjuvant to develop many vaccines. In the language of medical science, this booster produces TH-2-based immune response, which is necessary to eliminate bacterial infections and extracellular parasites.

How does it make antibodies against the virus

Covacine is an inactivate hole virus vaccine. They make antibodies against the whole virus and in such a way even if there is a change in the virus, they have the ability to fight it. This type of vaccine contains many viral proteins and inactivated viruses. Inactivated vaccines contain dead pathogens (sickening viruses). These dead pathogens cannot go into the body and increase their numbers, but the body considers them to be an external attack and antibodies develop in the body against it.

Bharat Biotech is a reputed pharmaceutical manufacturer. It has provided 4 billion vaccine doses worldwide. The Hyderabad-based company has prepared vaccines for infections such as rotavirus, hepatitis, zika, Japanese encephalitis. Covaccine can be stored at 2 to 8 ° C temperature and transported.
