‘The Covid-19 vaccines are 110% safe…’: DCGI V.G. Somani
Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) VG Somani said that the Covid-19 vaccines are 110% safe. “We'll never approve anything if there is slightest of safety concern. The vaccines are 100 per cent safe. Some side effects like mild fever, pain and allergy are common for every vaccine. It is absolute rubbish that people may become impotent,” said Somani. Earlier, DCGI gave its nod to Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech's vaccines for emergency use. The Serum Institute of India, the world's largest vaccine manufacturer, has tied up with AstraZeneca to manufacture Covishield. Covaxin has been indigenously developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter congratulating the entire nation. Watch the full video for more.
