Govt raises gap between Covishield shots to 4-8 weeks
The health ministry on Monday revised the interval between two doses of the Covishield vaccine to 4-8 weeks, from the existing 4-6 weeks, after evidence showed higher efficacy following a longer gap between the shots. The revised time interval between two doses is applicable only to Covishield and not to Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin vaccine.
