From March 16, the Centre has chosen to begin COVID-19 vaccination for the 12-14 age groups (those born in 2008, 2009, and 2010, i.e. those who are already above the age of 12). The Union Health Ministry stated in a statement released on Monday that the decision was reached after extensive consultation with scientific bodies. Corbevax, a vaccine made by Biological E. Limited in Hyderabad, will be used. COVID-19 vaccination is already being given to those over the age of 14. Omicron, which infected a vast portion of the population, including children, appears to have passed on long-lasting natural immunity, leaving us healthy.
