Dr. Raman Gangakhedkar, former head of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases at the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), said that there is no need for a fourth dose of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine, given the available evidence about the corona virus and its forms. Gangakhedkar said on the sidelines of an event on Tuesday that if a person has taken the third dose of the anti-Covid-19 vaccine, it means that his ‘T-cell’ immune response has been trained three times.

Dr Raman Gangakhedkar said, “The core virus (Covid-19) has not changed enough to require a new vaccine, so rely on our ‘T-cell’ immune response. Seeing this, it is not so serious that the fourth dose of anti-Kovid-19 vaccine is needed. According to Dr. Gangakhedkar, the elderly and people already suffering from any disease should continue to take precautionary measures like wearing masks.
Gangakhedkar said that there is no need to think about the fourth dose now, because any new form will not be related to SARS-COV2. It could be a complete redesign, and when that comes, we’ll think about that, because our genomic surveillance is still ongoing. No need to worry now.
