AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria?

Randeep Guleria, Director, AIIMS, on Saturday said that COVID-19 should be able to give good protection from the infection for 8-10 months. Guleria was speaking at an event by the IPS (Central) Association. He also said that till now no major side effect of the vaccine has been recorded.

Commenting on the surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the country, Guleria said: There are multiple reasons for the surge, but the main reason is that there is a change in people’s attitude and they feel coronavirus is over. People should still restrict non-essential travel for some more time.

Speaking about the efficacy of the two vaccines available in India ? Covishield and Covaxin, Guleria said, If we look at the two vaccines, they produce equal antibodies and are very robust. We should take the vaccine available to us because both are equally effective in terms of efficacy and long-term protection.
