India gov't seals deal for 300 mln Biological-E COVID-19 vaccine doses

 

https://www.reuters.com/world/india/india-govt-seals-deal-300-mln-biological-e-covid-19-vaccine-doses-2021-06-03/

Biological-E already has facility setup for J&J, govt. can just place the order and it will start rolling off the line tom.

This should already have been done in addition to this deal.

Literally booked the last slots in COWIN for parents second dose of Covishield last night. Got done with vaccination this morning. Was pretty seamless and well organized (private hospital in Hyderabad). 

 

Booked first dose of Covaxin for me and my wife for Sunday. Via a portal sponsored by company. Hoping it actually works and is not just saline.

Congrats bro. It works. Aisa band baja deta hai body ka ki poocho mat. :mellow:

 

But all for a good cause. So have to just put up with it. 
 

Strangely no elders on either side had any effects with covi. But both me, wife and friends at work had one or more major side effects. Says a lot about the resiliency of us younger folks :D

 

Covaxin is FALD. Covishield is OLED. Yikes just re-read you chose covax.

Arre haa didn’t read well. Still knocked out with the heavy head and other effects. :huh:
Anyways jo bhi mil raha hai le lo. No point waiting for a better one. And this is not a time to argue about FALD and oled :chair:

Just checked after almost 15 days 

1000’s of slots are empty here in delhi 

 

It’s either a good thing or a very bad thing 

might give you the vibes of 45+ drive which saw no one taking interest

Covaxin still hard to come by in 18+ segment.

Dose 2 period has already started for my friends.

Vaccination for 18+ only began in May 

April was still 45+ 
 

Yeah atleast in the Metros & high density areas things are getting better 

 

I think the government could have done this much earlier if they had given heed to second waves in EU & Americas 

 

But what’s happened happened & can’t be changed 

I hope they don’t let their guard down now 

 

Cowin design is faulty.

 

It should've been very simple. Like you  make your preferences about centers, vaxx, free/paid, select 3 dates and then system just draws and decide.

Making it more messy than booking a Tatkal ticket is what repelling people.

Agreed. But problem is people not showing up and vials getting wasted.

Yes need some more filters and also maybe an option to have FIFO process, where you choose three vaccination centers and then you get a token number. You go and get the vaccination when your token number arrives obviously you are intimated a day in advance. If you miss taking the vaccine you go in the end of the queue. This way I don't have to keep playing and checking, when my turn comes, it comes, and it can also be based on what number is going on and how many more to go, this will give you an approximate date. Keep a buffer of 30 people, so you keep 3 extra vials, if they don't get used use them next day.

& a fine of 10k if you book & don’t show up more than twice 

That will be harsh, since you can not be sure when the slot will show up, you just get booted out after two fail attempts and get blocked for two weeks from site and then you have to go back and register again.

 1.32 lacs tested positive of 20,19,773 tests were conducted on Tuesday. 

 

Compared to 19,25,374 tests were conducted on Monday and 1.27 lacs positive.

 

almost a lac extra test and 5K extra, good signs.

1.34 lacs tested positive yesterday, jump of 2K more but 21,59,873 tests were conducted on Wednesday . So 2K more for almost  1.4 lac extra test conducted, this is good sign.

"Due to the changing nature of the pandemic, we are now faced with a situation where the 18-44 age group also needs to be vaccinated, although priority may be retained between different age groups on a scientific basis. Hence, due to the importance of vaccinating individuals in the 18-44 age group, the policy of the Central Government for conducting free vaccination  themselves for groups under the first 2 phases, and replacing it with paid vaccination by the State/UT Governments and private hospitals for the persons between 18-44 years is,prima facie, arbitrary and irrational", the Court observed.
