  • Additionally, people with co-morbidities and above 60 years of age will be eligible to take the preconcussion dosage from January 10, 2022, on the advice of their doctors.
  • The Prime Minister has also assured that the country will soon develop a nasal vaccine and the world’s first DNA vaccine.
  • The nasal mucosa has excellent potential for vaccination due to the organized immune system of the nasal mucosa.

Other benefits include:

  • Non-invasive, ease of use, elimination of needle risks, expandable construction, etc.
  • Both DNA and RNA vaccines are gene based vaccines.
  • Traditional vaccines involve injecting a weakened form of a virus or bacteria into the body. In contrast, gene-based vaccines use part of the virus’s own genes to stimulate an immune response.
