The Kerala High Court has refused to stay the order of a single bench regarding the corona vaccine. This decision of the High Court has shocked the Central Government. In this, the central government has been directed to make a provision on the Kovin portal that those who are willing to take the second dose of Kovidhield vaccine after four weeks can schedule it as per the initial protocol. Let us inform that against the decision of the single bench, the Central Government had filed an appeal in the Kerala High Court. In which the court of judge PB Suresh Kumar said that the state and central governments should also give an option of 4 weeks in the duration of the second dose of Kovishield if needed.
Earlier on September 6 also, the court had directed the Center to make changes in the COVID portal so that the second dose of Kovidhield vaccines can be scheduled even after four weeks.
Actually, an appeal was filed in the court on behalf of the employees of two companies requesting to take the second dose of Kovishield within four weeks. On which the central government had argued that the gap between the two doses of the vaccine is 84 days. On which the court said that the government should also give an option of 4 weeks to take the second dose of the vaccine on its Kovin portal.
On this, Solicitor General P Vijayakumar appealed to the High Court on behalf of the government that the decision of the single bench should be stayed, as there was no need for it. The High Court has upheld the decision of the single bench on this.
Let us inform that in the month of June, the Central Government has fixed the timing of the second dose of Kovishield Vaccine for 84 days. Under which the second dose will be taken only 84 days after the first dose. Earlier the gap between the two doses was fixed at only 4 weeks. At the same time, the gap in both doses of indigenous corona vaccine vaccine is still only four weeks.
