Dr NK Arora also added that vaccine rollout for healthy children is likely to begin in the first quarter of next year.

In an interview with NDTV, Dr Arora said Like the vaccination in adults, a "prioritisation process is in place" for the country's 44 crore children, and a list of comorbidities is being prepared.

He added that there is also an effort to reduce the number of doses of ZyCoV-D - the Zydus-Cadilla vaccine from three to two doses.
