Yesterday, Thursday, Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said that the Indian Corona virus vaccines are safe and people should not be afraid of them or respond to false information, as part of efforts to address what his ministry described as “hesitation about the vaccine.”
The vaccine was launched in India on January 16, with the aim of vaccinating 30 million health-care workers and auxiliary personnel in the first round, but the process is moving slowly, with less than 60% of the target achieved during the first five days.
A total of 786,842 health care teams were vaccinated Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Health.
