The demand for booster dose was going on in Bihar itself.
Let us tell you, many doctors of Bihar were demanding booster dose. Dr Sanjeev Kumar, the COVID-19 nodal officer, Patna AIIMS, said that six months after the second dose, the effectiveness of the vaccine starts to weaken, so the third booster dose will certainly provide more protection against any new variant.
PM Modi has announced the ‘booster’ dose, know when will the third dose be taken?
No case of Omicron in Bihar yet
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today ruled out any possibility of imposing night curfew-like restrictions in the state amid rising cases of Omicron in the country. Not a single case of the new variant has been reported in Bihar, although the health department admits that in the absence of genome testing facilities in the state, timely detection of this infection may become difficult.
