According to Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan Since the commencement of vaccination on 16 January, there have been about 600 side effects cases in the country. There have also been reports of death after vaccination from some states. However, the postmortem report did not find a vaccination to be the cause of death.
On this, “Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that the truth is that vaccination is completely safe and effective. Cases of side effects are common. This happens in any vaccination”.
Our responsibility to keep everyone safe: Harsh Vardhan
He said, ‘Vaccination will prove to be the final nail in the corona’s coffin. It is unfortunate that some people are spreading wrong things about vaccination in order to take political advantage. Because of this, some people are reluctant to get vaccinated. The government does not want anyone to have any negative impact after vaccination. It is our responsibility to keep everyone safe.
