Indian athletes who qualify for the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan’s capital, are scheduled to apply the second dose of Kovid-19 in four weeks.

The minimum dose of the Kovid-19 vaccine has been given to 120 regular players and 27 para players so far, the IOA said on Sunday.

Narinder Batra has informed the National Sports Federations (NSF). “All the NSFs who qualify for the Tokyo Olympics,” Batra said in a statement released here. According to a letter issued by the Ministry of Health of the Government of India on such players and officials, the second dose will be given four weeks after the first dose of the vaccine. Last month, a government committee recommended increasing the COVID-19 vaccine dose interval for the Serum Institute of India to 12-16 weeks. However, there is a gap of four weeks between the two doses of Kovacsin in Bharat Biotech.

As far as coaches and support staff are concerned, so far 114 people have received the first vaccine while 37 members have received both vaccines. In addition, the IOA has asked five Olympic eligible players to get the first vaccine quickly, as they were unable to get it because of the Kovid-19. These players are now recovering from the disease.
