Karnataka doctors demand choice of Covid-19 vaccine before inoculation

Jan 19, 2021 22:25 IST

The Karnataka Association of Resident Doctors has asked the government to allow healthcare workers to make a choice between the two available Covid-19 vaccines. A letter written to Health and Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar mentions that resident doctors of six districts in the state feel they are being discriminated against. The resident doctors are concerned that they have been given Covaxin vaccine as the only choice, whereas other centres in Karnataka have been receiving Covishield. The concern has arisen because the clinical efficacy of Covaxin is yet to be established.
