Do people who get the COVID-19 vaccine still need to wear a mask?
A short answer to this is YES! Leading agencies including the WHO and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the US have reiterated that the COVID-19 vaccine will not replace the need for other public health measures, such as wearing a mask, social distancing and washing hands. In our commitment to ensuring the safety of our customers in India, KARAM recently announced its expansion in the consumer healthcare segment with the launch of its KARAM Plus range. The launch of the KARAM Healthcare range is yet another step in this vein and our humble effort in making India’s healthcare ecosystem Aatmanirbhar (self-reliant).

Our range of ISI certified masks, face shields, eye protection glasses, and full-body coverall is aimed towards providing maximum comfort and highest quality assurance to the consumers, to ease their transition towards a safe and new normal along with the medical personnel who are working day in and day out on the front-lines of this crisis.
