Healthcare workers in Bengaluru scared of taking Covid vaccine

Bengaluru: Hospitals in the city are holding surveys of their healthcare staff to determine if they are comfortable in taking  coronavirus vaccine.

This is because most of the healthcare staff are scared of taking the vaccine. Nobody is volunteering to go first, Dr Rekha G., medical superintendent at Suguna hospital said.

A lot of people might back out at the last minute, Dr Shetty said and added that they are doing a study on how many people do not want to take it and the reasons behind it.

Covishield has gone through a trial and passed the regulator somewhere in the world and has published in an eminent journal. “But with Bharat Biotech, though the company said it has published the data in five publications, we cannot find anything anywhere,” said Dr Ravindra Mehta, pulmonologist at Apollo Hospital.
