'Indians are not guinea pigs': Cong targets govt over Covaxin roll-out

Jan 13, 2021 17:05 IST

As the government gears up for the massive Covid vaccination drive, the Congress has cautioned the Centre against rolling out Bharat Biotech’s 'Covaxin' as it has not completed phase-3 trials. A day after the government said that a recipient cannot choose the Covid-19 vaccine to be administered; Congress MP Manish Tewari on Wednesday again raised doubts over the efficacy of the indigenously developed Covaxin. Tiwari said Covaxin should not be rolled out till its efficacy and reliability is completely established as Indians are not "guinea pigs". Covaxin is the third phase of trials and has been cleared for restricted emergency use by the DCGI.
