COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a vaccine work?

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

How many types of vaccines are there?

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

"Master has the potential to revive the fortunes of the ailing cinema industry and prompt release of big budget films across India.  We intend to aggressively cross promote stars of one region in other regions with a vision of one nation one film,” said Kapil Agarwal, Joint Managing Director, UFO Moviez.

Agarwal in an earlier interview had also emphasized that UFO Moviez will be bringing a lot of south Indian content in dubbed languages which do not come to northern markets because of the P&A (print and advertising) cost. "We will also try taking Hindi films to southern markets," he had said.

Master is an important film in the current times for both multiplex operators as well as single screen theatre owners.

Akshaye Rathi, Director, Saroj Screens Pvt Ltd, a single screen cinema chain, said, “A true entertainer like Master will provide some oxygen to thousands of single screen cinemas. This film can truly be the turning point that will kickstart the industry's march towards normalcy.”

Sharing similar sentiments, Kamal Gianchandani, CEO, PVR Pictures said, “Master is one of the most keenly awaited films. Entire film business would be watching its box office numbers closely. Master’s release is the beginning of film sector’s recovery.”
