The nasal spray will be given through the nose
Let us tell you that the vaccine that is being administered so far in the country is given through injection, but the biggest feature of the nasal vaccine is that it will be sprayed directly through the nose. This vaccine will create immunity in the inner parts of the nose. It is believed that this method is more effective for increasing immunity in children and there are many scientific reasons behind it.
The scientists' opinion behind the nasal vaccine
Let us tell you that the nasal vaccine has also been considered very effective against corona. Harvard immunologist Jose Ordovas Montes says that it is very important to strengthen the fight against corona. In such a situation, the vaccine will have to be applied from where the virus is entering the body. Jose explains that the vaccine that we are getting in hand carries antibodies and T-cells around the blood vessels to the elements present in it, but the effect of the vaccine will be more visible through the nose.
