‘Covid vaccines safe; politics on issue is unfortunate’: Health Minister

Union Health minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan reiterated the two vaccines which have been granted approval for use in India are safe and effective. He added that some people are playing politics over the issue resulting in vaccine hesitancy among a section of the people. Harsh Vardhan said that the vaccines will be the last nail in the coffin of Covid. He also said that mild fever, pain and swelling are common after vaccination and added that very few people have shown these side-effects too. Questions have been raised about the safety of Covaxin which has not yet published any data from phase three clinical trials. Additionally, the government has also said that people will not get to choose a vaccine in the first phase. Watch the full video for all the details.
