While covishield has been created by Oxford University and AstraZeneca. The vaccine is manufactured at the Serum Institute of India.
Russia’s Sputnik V is also involved in the fight against Korona. The vaccine was developed with the help of the Russian Development and Investment Fund (RDIF) at the Gamalea Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology in Moscow. The vaccine has been developed by 6 companies under the supervision of Reddy’s Laboratory, India. Initially 1.25 crore doses will be imported.
These three vaccines are slightly different. Covishield is the most popular vaccine in the world. Which is used in most countries. The vaccine has also been approved by the World Health Organization. Covaxin, on the other hand, is used only in India. While Sputnik V has been approved by more than 60 countries including India.
Covaxin has traditionally been developed on an inactivated platform. The vaccine injects the dead virus into the body. Which gives a boost to the antibody. The body recognizes the virus and makes antibodies to fight it.
While Covishield is a viral vector vaccine. The vaccine was developed using the adenovirus ChAD0x1 found in chimpanzees. With its help, a spike protein resembling a corona virus is developed. When it is injected into the body. This then stimulates protection.
Sputnik V is also a viral vector vaccine. It develops from two viruses instead of one. In this both doses are different while in Covexin and Covishield both doses are the same.
🩺How many doses to take after how many gaps..?
All three vaccines are in two doses. Two doses are required. The vaccine is given over the shoulder. Two doses of covacin should be taken at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks. Two doses of Covishield have to be maintained at 6 to 8 weeks interval while two doses of Sputnik V vaccine have to be maintained at 3 weeks interval.
It was initially decided to have a gap of 4 to 6 weeks for Covishield in India. But then Covishield was found to be more effective in experiments with more gaps in two doses. All three vaccines are effective from the perspective of Indians. It can be stored at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius. In comparison, many countries, including the United States, require a temperature of -70 સે C for storage by Pfizer and Modern.
💉 How effective are these vaccines..????💉
All three vaccines are very effective. They meet all the standards set by the World Health Organization. Data from clinical trials are still coming. The effectiveness of these vaccines is still being tested and studied.
Covishield’s trial closed in November last year. Its effectiveness rate is 70%. Efficacy may increase if the interval between doses is increased. Covexin’s trial took place earlier this year. The results of the second trial came in April. In which the vaccine was found to be 78% effective. This vaccine is 100% effective in preventing severe symptoms and life risk.
Sputnik V is India’s most effective vaccine in this regard. Sputnik V is the most effective vaccine, after the Modern and Pfizer mRNA vaccines, which are 90 percent effective. Whose effectiveness rate is over 91.6%.
