Doctors’ Group Urges Centre To Review All COVID Vaccines In View Of Covishield Side Effects

New Delhi:  In the wake of pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca admitting in a UK court that its COVID vaccine can cause blood clots in rare cases, a group of doctors on Thursday expressed deep concern over the safety of the Covishield vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII).

The doctors held a press conference under the banner of the Awaken India Movement (AIM), in which they urged the government to review the science behind all COVID vaccines and audit their commercialisation as well as the implementation of active surveillance and monitoring mechanism to ensure vaccine adverse events are identified as early as possible, PTI reported.

“The government has wholly ignored the rising number of cases of tragic deaths post-COVID vaccination all the while and continues to promote Covid vaccines as ‘safe and effective’, without scientific investigation and invoking epidemiology,” Dr Tarun Kothari, a radiologist and an activist, said at the press conference.

The world is learning about a side effect of the COVID vaccine called Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), he said.
