There should be no misconceptions about the safety of the coronavirus vaccine that India plans to use as “everything has been checked in detail”, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said today even as a dry run was in all states to find out the best possible way for mass vaccination and to plug loopholes in logistics and training.
The day-long drive tests Covid Vaccine Intelligence Network (CoWIN), a digital platform to release and promote the vaccination drive.
Dr Harsh Vardhan stated this while reviewing the progress of the drive.
Assuring everyone about its efficacy, health minister compared it to the polio vaccine drive India had launched decades ago. Everything is being done (in the drive), except the presence of an actual vaccine he said.
