What is the B.1.617.2 variant of SARS CoV2 virus and how effective are vaccines against this variant? Where does India stand with respect to vaccine rollout and how effectively has the government managed the vaccination drive? Watch IndiaSpend's Govindraj Ethiraj in conversation with Polly Roy, Prof of Virology Dept of Infection Biology, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Prof. Polly Roy says vaccines may not recognize the B.1.617 mutation completely as the vaccine is made based on the original virus. She also adds that it is good to mix two vaccines as people get a better booster dose. Watch the full interview!
