Now it is awaiting approval from the expert panel. Trials of other vaccines are also nearing completion. According to the government, after getting approval from experts, a roadmap for the vaccination of children will be prepared.

In fact, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the High Court in which a minor has requested directions for immediate vaccination for children in the age group of 12 to 17 years. It has been argued that children may be affected the most in the third wave of the corona. During the hearing on this petition, the Center has given this information to the Delhi High Court.

The High Court said that if the Covid-19 vaccines are applied without clinical trials, then it will be a disaster. The central government should make the vaccine available to children below 18 years of age quickly only after testing. The Center said that clinical trials of the corona vaccine for children below 18 years of age are going on and it is going to be completed soon. Children will be vaccinated only after getting permission from experts. The court has fixed the next hearing in the matter on September 6.
