“325 Rupees: India’s Intranasal Covid Vaccine Now Available”
Bharat Biotech’s vaccine for Type 2 Covid will be available from the 4th week of January for a sum of Rs 325 in government hospitals and for Rs 800 in private facilities. The vaccine is scheduled to be rolled out with the Cowin app and will be sent to children ages up to 18.
On August 11 of this year, Bharat Biotech received approval from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) for making use of heterologous booster doses for INCOVACC. The permission from the national drug regimen came after booster dose studies were conducted on 875 patients in 9 trial sites across India.
A heterologous booster means someone can be given a different booster as another dose from the first that was administered to him or her.
The recipients of the Nussloch NPC demonstrated considerable salivary IgA antibody amounts. Saliva mucus IgA antibodies in the upper respiratory tract could provide advantages in limiting disease transmission and infections.

We have engineered COVAXIN and iNCOVACC, two Huston-ton square viruses from two different platforms, using two different delivery systems juxtaposed. The vector nose administration type enables us to create vaccines quickly, reduce pathogens by scale-up, administer convenient vaccinations during public health emergencies, and integrate ahead of schedule into drug workflows.
These kinds of vaccinations are better compared to injections they protect against the entry of the pathogen in the nose, make less waste, and store easily.
