Today while answering to a press conference ICMR chief doctor balram bhargava that a small study regarding the vaccination of children's excluding the infants have started, but the data is not sufficient to start the inoculation in children, "we would not be able to vaccinate children at large."" Whether very small children will ever need the vaccine, is still a question. Till such time we have more data on the vaccination of children, we won't be in a position to vaccinate children at large," Bhargava said.

He further said, "However, we have started a small study on children between the age of 2 and 18, and we shall have the results of that by September or so. However, the international jury is still not out, and they're still debating whether children need to be vaccinated. We've seen that there have some cases of complications in the United States."
