The world’s first approved Plasmid DNA vaccine has received the DCGI nod. Here are some critical points based on the queries you have sent us about ZyCoV-D.
The Cadila Vaccine has received the EUA for adults and 12-18 years old adolescent children.
ZyCoV-D is administered with the Pharmajet needle-free applicator called Tropis, a painless intradermal delivery method. Zydus has claimed that the technique reduces possible side effects of vaccination significantly.
The 3-dose regimen for ZyCoV-D goes like 1st dose on day 0, 2nd dose on day 28, and 3rd dose on day 56.
Stability & Storage
The Plasmid DNA Vaccine is stable at 2-8 degrees C for upto three months. ZyCoV-D is easy to store, transport, and cold-chain breakdown won’t lead to immediate wastage with its thermostability.
Circular DNA pieces that are different from the chromosomal DNA but can replicate inependantly are called plasmids. The plasmid carrying genetic information on the SARS-CoV-2’s spike protein is introduced between the dermal layers of the human body.
The Plasmid DNA platform also allows generating new constructs quickly to deal with mutations in the virus, such as those already occurring.
Zydus Cadila’s press release explains the well-established efficacy and immunogenicity. The advanced technology of this Plasmid DNA platform allows it to trigger humoral or extracellular immunity as well as the cellular response through the release of phagocytes, T cells, cytokines and chemokines in response to antigen. The Cadila vaccine has shown a primary efficacy of 66.6% in symptomatic RT-PCR positive patients during the interim analysis. No moderate case of COVID-19 disease was observed in the vaccine arm after the administration of 3rd dose suggesting 100% efficacy for moderate disease. No severe cases or deaths due to COVID-19 occurred in the vaccine arm after administration of the second dose of the vaccine. The Plasmid DNA platform also allows generating new constructs quickly to deal with mutations in the virus, such as those already occurring.

Our indigenous ZyCoV-D, world’s first Plasmid DNA based vaccine, is joining the Indian vaccine portfolio soon. While majority of the supply will be parked for administration in the 12-18 years age group, the GOI has decided to go ahead with the adult immunisation first. Expected to hit the Indian Market in December, ZyCoV-D has an efficacy rate of 66.6% and is going to add more fuel for vaccination drives in India, not only in the adults but under EUA, 12-18 years population too. ZyCoV-D is a 3-dose vaccine. Administration interval is 28 days and entire schedule can be completed in roughly two months.
Studies shows a possibility of the novel coronavirus Delta variant transmission between and from population who have not only followed complete vaccination schedule for the respective brands, but also wear mask regularly. A research group from the INSACOG consortium, CSIR, and the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) analysed 113 cases of breakthrough infections in healthcare workers from 2 hospitals. They identified a high probability of viral transmission, and the findings suggested an increasing complacency among vaccinated individuals.
Measures you need to take for continued protection against the novel coronavirus and its variants:
- Hand Hygiene
- Social Distancing
- Booster doses of vaccine after the gov guidelines are released
- Stay safe. Stay Healthy.
Recommendations regarding COVID Vaccination during pregnancy and lactation
MoHFW and WHO recommends that pregnant women and lactating mothers can take the COVID vaccines Covishield, Covaxin, Sputnik V, and Moderna. COVID vaccine-induced antibodies may pass from breastfeeding mother to child and offer them some protection from the highly infectious disease. Dr VK Paul, Member-Health, Niti Aayog, also stated that Vaccine has no association with infertility.
Download the Government Guidelines.
Who should avoid COVID vaccination during pregnancy or lactation?
Anybody including pregnant women and lactating mothers should not take the vaccine if they have a history of:
- Anaphylactic or allergic reaction to the previous dose of COVID-19 vaccine
- Anaphylaxis or allergic reaction to vaccines or injectable therapies, pharmaceutical
- products, food-items etc.
As of now, all COVID vaccines available are double-dosed. Since it’s not clear that the two shots can give life-long protection from the SARS-Cov-2, speculations are going on regarding the need of more vaccine shots to boost the immunity build up.
Dr Soumya Swaminathan. Chief Scientist, the WHO, has stated that the consideration of booster shot for those already vaccinated is too premature. High-risk population across the world haven’t received their first shot yet. Their 2nd dose should be prioritised before a booster dose is considered for people who have already received 2 shots.
Now, you can book your slot for COVID-19 Vaccination through the Paytm App.
Vaccination Drive for Special Groups in Karnataka
Sportspersons travelling for the Tokyo Olympics can get vaccinated from June 22 (Tuesday) at Bengaluru City University Campus, said Deputy Chief Minister and state COVID-19 Task Force head Dr CN Ashwath Narayan. Students and professionals who are travelling abroad can also join this drive. Those receiving their first shot of Covishield in this drive can take their 2nd jab 28 days after the 1st.
COVID vaccine for children
ZyCoV-D by Zydus Cadila awaits emergency use authorisation from the DGCI. Clinical trials for this vaccine in children of age group 12-18 years have ended. As a three-dose vaccine ZyCoV-D is recommended for children and adults in following schedule:

COVID 2.0, India
New case count:
925 in Bengaluru
1488 in Karnataka
Karnataka is stepping up the Vaccination Coverage to 3 Lakh per day and COVID Testing up to 1 lakh a day. Focus is on Bengaluru Urban which is currently contributing to 72% of the total positive cases in the state. 12 containment zones have been identified as of today.
12% of the new COVID cases are among patients who have travelled recently or attended some event or visited public places like shopping malls.
Phase 3 of the Vaccination Drive in India has commenced from March 1, 2021.
If you are above 45 years of age and have one of the conditions listed by government as COVID comorbidity, or you are above 60 years of age, you can self-register on the Co-WIN 2.0 app.
Onsite registration is available at government and empanelled private hospitals.
COVID-19 vaccine is scheduled for roll-out in the country on 16th January 2021 and the states/UTs have already received vaccines for the same.
In this regard, a comparative factsheet for both the vaccines that will be used during the introduction have been prepared which contains information on vaccine platform, physical specifications, dosage, cold chain storage requirements, contraindications and minor AEFIs. A detailed note on contraindications and special precautions has also been prepared and is enclosed.

Covishield is in phase 3 trials in India but global data show that this vaccine has an overall efficacy of 70.42%. Recommended doses: age group >18 years, 2 shots, 4-6 weeks apart, intramuscular. As per media reports, possible price in India: around ₹400.
Covaxin has just started phase 3 Clinical Trials and more data is required. Recommended doses: 2 shots, Day 0 and 28. As per media reports, possible price in India: less than ₹100.
Vaccination will be initially prioritised for beneficiaries like healthcare and other front-line workers. Clinical trials will continue. DCGI and other authorities will keep monitoring the new strain reported.
India has been conducting vaccine dry runs across several states to prepare for the actual drive. Drills include registration, verification, mock vaccination, and post-shot observations.
Vaccines: What are they?
Not a treatment.
Vaccines follow the classic principle of “Prevention is better than cure.”
A vaccine is a natural or genetically engineered, weakened or inactive form of the pathogen itself. When transferred to the host body, it trains the immune system to fight the infection if contracted in future.
What are we looking for, in the highly anticipated novel Coronavirus vaccine?
- Ease of Storage and Distribution
- Mechanism of Action (MOA)
Not necessarily in that order.
How does a vaccine work against viral infections?
Steps of Vaccine Development
- Preclinical phase
Testing out a potential vaccine in animals or laboratory environment
- Clinical phase
Examine dosage, efficacy, safety, and possible side effects of candidate vaccine in a small group of people (30-50)
Look for immunogenicity (does the vaccine elicit expected immune response?) besides safety and efficacy
More advanced stage of testing the candidate vaccine’s safety and efficacy along with large scale monitoring of adverse events. Chances of approval are related to the risk benefit ratio.
Who approves vaccines for manufacturing?
The regulators keep up the scrutiny even after approval process is over, to ensure continued safety.
A round-up on the novel coronavirus vaccines
Vaccines mostly have low to mild effects, mostly commonly fatigue, muscle aches, mild fever, etc which is more about body’s response to the shot than the disease
Those who have COVID infection should wait for complete recovery before getting the vaccine but there is no contraindication so far for patients who have had a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection.
We need to remember that vaccines are the best way to prevent infectious diseases.
Remember small pox, remember polio, remember tetanus! Then, ask yourself, are vaccines good or bad for you.
Truly, nothing is risk-free in this world. The speed at which COVID has set the vaccine race, many find it concerning. However, technology of vaccine development is way more advanced compared to what we knew even a decade ago. Also, in today’s world, everything happens under the watchful eyes of the public, the government, regulatory authorities and the media. So, let’s set our worries aside and wait for our turn to get that preventive shot against the pandemic.

Not much. Everything was professionally handled.
At the outset I wish to thank you Dr Noah, for recommending RXDX, for taking our first dose of covid vaccination for my wife and I. I am extremely happy to inform you that the hospitality extended to us when we visited the hospital today was truly professional. I found that every staff right at the entrance till the nurse who administered the vaccine were so courteous and affable. Dr Vijaya was kind enough to expeditiously issue a medical certificate for my wife who has comorbidity. Those at the reception at the 1st floor and 3rd floor, those who verified our identity proof were all so helpful, efficient and well mannered. The nurse who gave us the injection was also very polite, experienced and friendly. We neither felt any pain nor realised that we have already been injected. While we were asked to take rest for 30 min, an elderly gentleman spoke motivating words to us while enquiring as to how we felt after the vaccination. It was truly a unique experience on our maiden visit to RXDX and I once again thank you for directing us to the right hospital.
