Covovax works very well against omicron variant,more than Covishield, says Adar Poonawalla.
A complaint in this regard was registered and during the investigation, police zeroed in on the eight accounts to which the money was transferred.
The fraud unfolded between the afternoons of Wednesday and Thursday, said an official of Bundgarden police station.
He also called for speeding up the decision to vaccinate young kids and said if they can be given other immunisation vaccines why not for the COVID-19.
Calling for increased adoption of booster doses, Poonawalla said it is also needed because people need to travel internally and outside, many countries have made booster doses mandatory for travel.
The precautionary dose has to be of the same vaccine used for the first two doses.
The Union Health Ministry on Friday announced that those above the age of 18 years who have completed nine months after the administration of the second dose will be eligible for the precaution dose.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 'Alternate Fuel Conclave', he said the fourth wave, if at all it occurs, will hopefully be mild.
Poonawalla says younger age groups to follow shortly
