The first phase of Covid-19 vaccination which was held today and the frontline workers were vaccinated, the vaccine has turned out to be safe for all the Doctors till now. A slip with helpline numbers was provided to contact if any allergy or reaction would be noticed after the 30 minute resting period.
The Doctors declared themselves safe and suggested everyone to be positive about the vaccine. They also felt proud as the vaccine is purely made in India.
Dr. Akhil Gupta said “We’ve been fighting Covid-19 since 1.5 years now. The vaccine has come as a hope and hopefully it will turn out to be the final solution to this pandemic. It’s a matter of pride that vaccine is made in India. No one should fear it. A reaction can happen even by a paracetamol while this is a vaccine. I got covid positive 3 months back but got vaccinated today. Look at my confidence! The way people have got threatened through media, I ensure them that I’m safe. They must get vaccinated.”
“Today was the first dose of the vaccine and after 28 days there will be a booster dose. What happens is the dead fragments of virus act as antigen in the body and induce anti-body response which promotes full blown immunity. We hope the public of India gets rid of this virus soon.” He added.
Doctors of Samba Hospital too encouraged people to get enrolled for the vaccine and stated their personal experiences.
“I got vaccinated and successfully passed the resting period. No complications have been observed. I’m fit and fine. Let’s all be positive and trust the process.” Said a Doctor
CMO of District Hospital Samba said “Till now 23 people have been vaccinated and everyone’s fine. No complaint has been done. Senior Doctors have appreciated the process and now it’s my turn to get vaccinated.”
