NITI Aayog member (Health) Dr. V K Paul spoke on Covid-19 vaccination for children in India. "Child cohort is not a small cohort. My rough guess is that if it is between 12 to 18 years, this itself is about 13 to 14 crore population and for which we will need about 25-26 crore doses. "We cannot have some people getting and others not getting. So we will have to take this into account when we strategize and make a decision based on how many doses of which vaccines are available," he said. He further said that not only Bharat Biotech's Covaxin, but Zydus Cadila's vaccine is already being tested on children. Watch the full video for more details.
