Expert opinion on vaccine overdose
When we talked to the vaccine expert Dr. Chandrakant Laharia about this serious negligence in corona vaccination, he said that there is usually no harm due to the intake of a small amount of vaccine in the body. However, it can have an effect on the number of antibodies produced in the body. Also, they say that if a double dose of the vaccine is given, then simple side effects of the vaccine can also be seen in the body. Apart from these, there is no possibility of any serious damage.
The second dose of the vaccine will not be affected.
On the double dose of the vaccine, Dr. Chandrakant Laharia says that there will be no difference in the amount and timing of the second dose (booster dose) of the vaccine. This means that the quantity and the date on which the second dose is to be applied will be applied only.
