For those people who didn't get the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the government said there is no need to panic about the need for an immediate change in the dosage interval.

"We must remember that when we increased the gap, we had to consider the risk posed by the virus to those who have received only one dose," said Dr. V K Paul, member (Health) at NITI Aayog.
