Vaccines or villains? Indian Government admits multiple side-effects of COVID-19 jabs in RTI reply
The government’s two top watchdogs have admitted to ‘multiple side-effects’ of COVID-19 vaccines that were jabbed in over a billion Indians in the past more than two years.
The startling revelations are made by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) in an RTI reply to Pune businessman Prafful Sarda.
India has permitted AstraZenaca and Serum Institute of India, Pune’s ‘Covishield’ and SII’s own ‘Covovax’; vaccines of three Hyderabad-based companies the government-run Bharat Biotech Ltd.’s ‘Covaxin’, Dr. Reddy’s Lab imported ‘Sputnik V’, Biological E. Ltd.’s ‘CorBEvax’, and later, Cadila Healthcare Ltd., Ahmedabad’s ‘ZyCov-D’ only for teenagers (12-17 age).
In a specific query by Sarda on the side-effects of all these jabs, the ICMR’S PIO Dr. Leyanna Susan George and CDSCO’s PIO Sushanta Sarkar, have cited a plethora of ramifications arising out of all these vaccines comprising their FAQs.
Dr. Leyanna Susan George, PIO of the ICMR, and PIO Sushanta Sarkar, PIO of the CDSCO, cited a plethora of ramifications arising from all of these vaccines in their FAQs in response to a specific question from Sarda regarding the side effects of all of these vaccines.
Covishield is responsible for the majority of its side effects on the jabbed janta injection site, including tenderness or pain, multiple red spots or bruises beyond the injected site, persistent vomiting without a reason, severe or persistent abdominal pains or headaches with or without vomiting, shortness of breath, chest pains, pain in limbs or swelling on pressing of calf/arms, weakness/paralysis of limbs of any particular side or parts of the body, including cranial nerve
Asthenia (weakness or lack of energy), injection site pruritus (itching, rash, red skin, hives), enlarged lymph nodes, back pains, and occasionally dizziness or drowsiness are among the Covovax side effects. Other side effects include injection site pain/tenderness/induration, fatigue, malaise, headaches, fever, soreness of muscles, joint pains, nausea of vomiting, chills, body-ache or extreme pain in
Covaxin causes mild AEFI symptoms like pain and swelling at the injection site, headaches, fatigue, fever, body pain, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, giddiness, tremors, sweating, and a cold and cough. Other symptoms include fever, body pain, and fatigue.
Chills, fever, arthralgia, myalgia, asthenia, headaches, general discomfort, pain/swelling/hyperaemia at the injection site, nausea, dyspepsia, loss of appetite, and occasionally enlarged regional lymph nodes are symptoms of Sputnik V.
In addition to pain or erythema at the injection site, swelling, rash, pruritis, or irritation, CorBEvax causes body pains, fever/pyrexia, headaches, fatigue, myalgia, nausea, or arthralgia.
“The ICMR-CDSCO responses are plainly shocking. Even though the government has said that “vaccination is completely voluntary,” why did it make people feel forced to stop going on buses, trains, flights, interstate travel, hotels, restaurants, multiplexes, malls, etc.? “Sarda said sharply, “This trapped more and more panicked people into getting themselves jabbed without knowing the effects.”
Now that vaccine-related deaths are being reported worldwide, he urged the government to release data on whether hospitals, vaccination centers, the media, and the health ministry provided adequate publicity about all of these potential side effects. He also urged the government to launch any public safety campaigns for the gullible masses.
