A 40-year-old man has allegedly suffered serious side effects including neurological breakdown and impairment of cognitive functions after he took part in the third phase of Covishield trial at a Chennai hospital. His lawyers have now served a notice to the Serum Institute of India which  conducted these trials saying the adverse effects of the vaccine were being hidden. His lawyers claimed that after 10 days of administering of the vaccine, the volunteer started experiencing severe headache and vomiting followed by totally disorientation and visual and verbal difficulties. He has demanded a rupees 5 crore compensation from the SII which is manufacturing the vaccine for Oxford University and Astrazeneca.
