There is still doubt in the minds of many people about the Corona vaccine. Due to which, the targets fixed for vaccine in many hospitals and health centers across the country have not been met. Despite the name being registered, many health workers are not reaching vaccination centers to get vaccinated.
Refused to apply vaccine by writing a letter in Hyderabad
Some doctors in Hyderabad wrote to their top officials and refused to apply the vaccine. Doctors said that they would wait for other options to come up for the vaccine. After getting the vaccine, people are hesitant due to some cases of side effects of AEFI (Adverse Events Following Immunization). According to a senior doctor at Osmania General Hospital, “If I get the vaccine now, I will not be able to get the vaccine again in the future, even when there is a possibility of better alternatives.” The names of 600 health workers at Osmania General Hospital were registered for vaccination but less than 200 arrived to take advantage of it.
Health workers are also hesitant in Maharashtra
Health workers in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad of Maharashtra are hesitant to get vaccinated. Deputy Director of Health Services Sanjay Deshmukh said that there is doubt about the effectiveness of the vaccine and its safety. This is the reason why many health workers are still hesitant to come for the vaccine.
