Government Should Protect the Vaccine makers from “frivolous lawsuits”- Adar Poonawala

The largest vaccine producer in the world has asked the government to indemnify manufacturers against lawsuits. Serum Institute of India CEO Adar Poonawalla has asked the government to protect the vaccine makers from “frivolous lawsuits”. Adar Poonawalla’s comment has come after a volunteer in Chennai alleged that he had suffered from the adverse effects after volunteering for the Oxford vaccine trials.

“We need to have the government indemnify manufacturers, especially vaccine manufacturers, against all lawsuits,” Adar Poonawala said at Global Technology Summit 2020, organised by the Carnegie India with The Print as its digital partner.
