Reading the article, it seems like they might have also mistakenly discovered a different dosage method of administering the vaccine. Yes, this method would also need to undergo a proper trial across all age groups, but it might also work out in the end.

May be they didn't want negative publicity around the vaccine before mass release given what is at stake...

Wondering what will be the ground reality after such frantically hushed up vaccine is introduced in such a big country. May have to count the side effects and deaths, will have to listen to media justifying those deaths for a higher cause and reason...

I honestly don't know how many volunteers and trials are needed to determine the impact of the vaccine on a country as large and diverse as India?

Vaccine claims to be effective but i feel one must not go for it even if govt approves it right from the start. It may have some adverse effects or side effects in long term which this studies might not reveal in such an early stage. Better to follow social distance and safety protocols for some more time even after the vaccine is launched.

What makes Russia's Sputnik V a sought-after COVID vaccine for developing world, including India

https://www.moneycontrol.com/news/b...developing-world-including-india-6184861.html

Sputnik V is said to be stable at 2-8 degrees Celsius, which makes it compatible with cold-chain conditions in most of the developing world. Dr Reddy's and Hetero have signed up with RDIF to manufacture and distribute 200 million doses of the vaccine in India.

Sputnik V vaccine is based on the human adenovirus vector, which is considered to be a safe and well-studied platform. In fact, its rival AstraZeneca-University of Oxford’s COVID vaccine, too, uses adenovirus as a vector but a Chimpanzee version.

It’s uncertain where that extra capacity will come from. Stockholm has asked for additional health-care staff from Sweden’s armed forces, but it’s not clear the military has the resources to help. Sweden, which has avoided a lockdown since the pandemic started, , may now need to turn to its Nordic neighbors for assistance.

It’s coronavirus and RNA virus. RNA virus are known to mutate. It’s only question of time when they would mutate.

Why new vaccine is made every year for influenza?

people who arrived from Uk , half of them gave wrong address and wrong mobile no to trace them. What you think about that?
