The gap between two doses of the Covishield COVID-19 vaccine can be increased to 12-16 weeks, a government panel recommended Thursday, according to a report by news agency PTI. No changes were suggested for Covaxin which remains at four to six weeks.

PM Modi missing along with vaccines
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, alleging that he is missing along with vaccines, oxygen and medicines during the COVID-19 pandemic and what remains is the central vista project and the PM’s photos.
The former Congress chief has been attacking the Prime Minister every day over the government’s handling of the pandemic and has been critical of the Centre for the lack of oxygen, medicines and vaccines in the country amid a surge in the number of cases during the second wave of COVID-19.
“The Prime Minister is also missing, along with vaccines, oxygen and medicines. All that remain are the central vista project, GST on medicines and the Prime Minister’s photos here and there,” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
