INSACOG calls for booster dose to people above 40


  • Indian Sars-Cov2 Genomics Sequencing Consortium INSACOG has stressed upon vaccination of all remaining unvaccinated at-risk people and consideration of a booster dose for those 40 years of age and over.
  • In its weekly bulletin, INSACOG said, priority may be given to those who are at high risk or high exposure for the booster shot as they have a low level of antibodies.
  • Genomic surveillance will be critical for early detection of the presence of Covid-19 variants, to enable necessary public health measures.
