This is the third such incident in the recent times in which Indian pharmaceutical companies have been in the crosshairs of health authorities. Just few months back, a controversy had erupted over the death of 66 children in Gambia after taking cough syrup imported from India. Then, towards the end of December, Uzbekistan had also claimed that 18 of 21 children with acute respiratory diseases died after ingesting Dok-1 Max syrup…a syrup that was manufactured and exported to Uzbekistan. In this video, we take a look at the possible reasons why the US FDA has issued caution over an India-made eye drop.

FDA Proposes Annual COVID Vaccination Plan [Video]

FDA Proposes Annual COVID Vaccination Plan

FDA Proposes , Annual COVID Vaccination Plan. ABC reports that health officials in the United States want to make COVID-19 vaccinations more like the annual flu shot. On January 23, the Food and Drug Administration proposed a new vaccination effort that would allow most adults and children to get a once-a-year COVID shot. ABC points out that this means people in the U.S. would no longer have to keep track of how many shots they've received or when they last got boosted. According to ABC, the proposal comes as over 80% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, while just 16% have received the latest booster. On January 26, the FDA will refer to a panel of outside vaccine experts to weigh the new proposal. According to FDA scientists, many Americans now have “sufficient preexisting immunity” because of vaccination, infection or a combination of the two. . Scientists at the FDA and vaccine companies suggest that further study could be done to decide who should receive a single shot and who requires a two-dose series. The FDA plan also includes streamlining the process by switching all vaccines to target the same strains, thus eliminating the current complicated system. The proposal also includes a similar approach to the annual flu shot by having the agency, independent experts and manufacturers select which strains to target annually. The FDA has expressed that the move to an annual schedule would also help promote future vaccination campaigns and boost nationwide vaccination rates
