- Corona vaccine is also being given to adolescent children.
- Several immunization centers are asking children to take 3 paracetamol of 500 mg after vaccination.
- There is no need to take any paracetamol or pain killer after taking covacin.
However, the administration has come down to this. They want to vaccinate as many people as possible. Earlier, all those above 18 years of age were vaccinated. This time the list includes 15 to 16 year olds. Corona vaccine is also being given to children of this age.
In this case, India Biotech’s Covaxin has been chosen to vaccinate 15 to 18 year olds. In this case no other vaccine should be given. However, some information has come to the fore since the beginning of this vaccination phase. In this case, India Biotech has banned the use of paracetamol to eliminate the side effects of the vaccine.
According to Bharat Biotech, we have information that several vaccination centers are asking children to take 3 mg of paracetamol after vaccination. There is no need to take any paracetamol or pain killer after taking covacin.
They added that paracetamol may work with other vaccines. However, there is no need for this vaccine.
The agency claims that the vaccine was administered to 30,000 people. Side effects have occurred in 10 to 20 percent of cases. Most had mild symptoms. The problem is solved within 1-2 days. No medication was required. Medication can be taken only after consulting a doctor.
According to some experts, mild fever, headache and body aches mean that your body has started to fight against this disease. So there is no need to take pain killer or paracetamol.
Another group of doctors thinks that children should not be given paracetamol after vaccination. This is because taking paracetamol after vaccination can damage the liver. This problem is called hepatotoxicity. Therefore, instead of paracetamol, mephenamic acid or meftal syrup can be given as advised by the doctor.
What does the Kolkata expert say?
Prominent medical expert Dr. Rudrajit Pal said that not everyone gets fever or side effects after taking the vaccine. So not everyone needs to take paracetamol. And there is no need to take medicine for some minor symptoms. And if there is a problem, it can be eaten as advised by the doctor. However, I will say again, the medicine should be taken with the advice of the doctor.
