New Delhi: The Union Health Ministry on Tuesday presented a weekly report on corona and vaccination. Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said that people who have been given Bharat Biotech supplements of Covaxin, their health is being monitored so that any side effects can be tested immediately.
The Health Secretary said that those applying covaxin will have to fill the form for a week. During this time, he also cleared the difference between Covishield and Covishield. The Serum Institute of India has formed Covishield in collaboration with Oxford-AstraZeneca. Recently, the last trial of this vaccine has been completed, while the cocaine is currently in the third stage of the trial.
The Health Secretary said that the government has opted for a monitoring approach to covaxin the serum. At the same time, Bharat Biotech is being monitored on the application of covaxin, so that any adverse reactions that may have occurred after vaccination.
In fact, the central government had said that patients with weak immunity or taking immunity-enhancing drugs can also get the Corona vaccine applied, but due to the persistent adversary reaction, Bharat Biotech released the factsheet on Tuesday. Bharat Biotech said that patients with weak immunity and taking immunity-enhancing drugs should not be prescribed Covaxin. If such people apply Covaxin, they may have severe allergic reactions. Also, those who have a fever, should not get vaccinated. Only after this, the government has decided to monitor the health of the people applying cocaine.
How will it be monitored?
Rajesh Bhushan said, ‘The serum institute’s surveillance on those applying the covishield vaccine is inoperative. In this, the person applying the vaccine will be observed for only 30 minutes. If all goes well, they will be sent home. However, after the symptoms of corona have developed or show any side effects, the vaccine will have to inform the vaccine immediately. At the same time, Bharat Biotech will be actively monitored in the case of Covaxin. This means that a doctor will update your health daily. After applying the vaccine, you are given a form, which you fill for seven days. It contains some information related to your health.
Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan told that 4 lakh 54 thousand 49 people have been vaccinated in the country so far. India will cross the number of people who have been vaccinated in the first week in the first 3 days. In the first week, 5 lakh 56 thousand 208 people were vaccinated in the US.
Cases of side effects are significantly less in India
Bhushan said that only 0.18% of the people who have been vaccinated in India have seen side effects. Of these, 0.002% were people who had to be hospitalized. He told that we have a fixed system to track the side effects after the vaccine. In terms of 3-day statistics, the number of side-effects cases is much less than the rest of the world. 2 people have lost their lives, but they have nothing to do with vaccination.
Lakshadweep top and Punjab behind in vaccination
Secretary of the Health Ministry said that in the last two days, the best vaccination was done in Lakshadweep. 87% of the people registered here were vaccinated. Similarly, 81% people were vaccinated in Andaman, 81% in Telangana, 80% in Dadra and Nagar Haveli, 75% in Arunachal, 71% in Uttar Pradesh and 71% in Rajasthan. The worst report came from Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Punjab. Only 34.9% of those registered in Tamil Nadu and only 27% in Punjab were vaccinated.
Corona chains can break through vaccination
At the same time, Dr. Balaram Bhargava, Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), said that it is clear that both covaxine and covishield are safe. The vaccine does not cause corona infection, rather it prevents infection. The vaccine prevents deaths from the corona. So this is the time of vaccination. Only by vaccination can we break the chain of corona infection.
