COVID VACCINE: As India fights a second deadly wave of coronavirus epidemics with increasing cases every day, all of us need to get vaccinated and fight against the virus.
The structure of most viruses is made up of three things. RNA, Proteins, and Lipids. These form viruses in the form of three layers. The lipid contours the outer layer and supports maintaining the structure of the virus. But this outer layer of lipid is the weakest link in the configuration of the virus.

HOW DOES ENTRY INTO THE BODY?
As per the research so far and according to the direction of doctors, Corona can take entry into someone’s body with the help of the mouth, eyes, and nose. In general, this virus enters people’s bodies through droplets, that is, sneezes or coughs. This virus starts to spread through the protein known as ACE 2 of human body cells.
After this, the upper part of the coronavirus ie lipid is broken down and spreads. The RNA comprised within it is found in our body cells. Then this virus starts making negative proteins in the cells of our body. Then the coronavirus is produced in our body.
When negative proteins start to form in our body, our cells also start to mold like the same virus. Many new viruses originate within cells. Then the number of viruses within the body begins expanding. When the number of these viruses comes to be very high then the cells inside our body begin dying.
They initiate obstructing the procedure of cleaning oxygen by entering our lungs.
India started its Covid vaccination program in January. More than 25 million people have been vaccinated in the country so far and crores of doses have been sent to other countries. Two vaccines were authorized based on lab test results.
Experts expressed their opinion on Covishield (Oxford-AstraZeneca Developed) of Serum Institute of India (SII) and Covaxin of Bharat Biotech. Both vaccines are safe. Let us understand what is the difference between Covishield and Covacian and which is better.
HOW DO BOTH COVID VACCINE WORK?
Covaxin is an inactivated vaccine produced by the dead coronavirus. For this, Bharat Biotech used a sample of isolated coronavirus at the National Institute of Virology, Pune. When vaccinated, immune cells recognize the dead virus and make antibodies against it. However, two doses of the vaccine are given at an interval of four weeks and can be stored between 2 ° C to 8 ° C.
Covishield has been developed simultaneously by Oxford University and AstraZeneca. It is being developed by the Serum Institute of India in India. This vaccine is a weak form of the common cold virus. It has been modified to resemble the coronavirus but is not the cause of the disease. When vaccinated, it prepares the immune system to fight a coronavirus infection.
This Covid vaccine takes two doses at intervals of four and 12 weeks. It can also be stored between 2 degrees to 8 degrees.
Which Of The Two Vaccines Is Better?
There is no major difference both of them work well. Although Lancet has stated that covaxin uses two types of boosters, so it may prove to be superior to the rest of these active SARS-COV-2 TACs. Two Chinese companies have similarly produced vaccines, but only one of them is a booster. However, it cannot be compared to Covishil is built at different locations of the two. Which of the two is better is known only after a long research on the immune response.
