The masses are waiting for the vaccination process against corona virus. The Health Ministry has stated that the entire population may not be vaccinated; just the infected people will be vaccinated to break the chain of the virus.
In a press briefing, Balram Bhargava, the Director General of state-run Indian Council of Medical Research said that if only the critical people are vaccinated and it breaks the chain of corona virus, then vaccinating the entire population will not be required. The Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan here said that the government never said spoke about vaccinating the entire country. He also said that such scientific issued must be discussed based on factual information only.
Prior to this, both the officials were addressing a controversy triggered by allegations made by a Chennai based man that the clinical trials sponsored by the Serum Institute of India left him with serious neurological symptoms. Adverse effects are when the trial volunteers develop any serious illness following any inoculation and during the period for which they need to be monitored, which is usually 2 months, and in this case as stated, the side effects that the volunteer experienced are not because of the vaccine. The incident is under investigation currently.
India is targeting vaccination shots for 300 million health care workers and essential service staff in the 1st phase of vaccination.
