VK  Paul niti aayog’s health member on behalf of the government informed that vaccine trials on children between the age of 2 to 18 years will be considered for phase 2 and phase 3 clinical trials in the next 10 to 12 days. "Covaxin has been approved by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI), for Phase II/III clinical trials in the age group of 2 to 18 years. 

I have been told that trials will begin in the next 10-12 days," Paul stated. This trial approach was accepted after rejection of the first approach in February when the company was ordered to provide the vaccines' efficacy data in adults first. This approval comes after US and Canada's approval of Pfizer biotech shot for 12-15 year olds. The clinical trials and children's in India will consist of 525 participants at various hospitals around the country so that the efficacy can be measured and vaccination in children can be done  for safe reopening of school.
