Centre asks states & union territories to prepare and get ready for ‘adverse events’ during COVID-19 vaccination

The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has sent a warning to the states and union territories regarding preparations for adverse events during vaccinations.

“Adverse events following immunisation is a critical issue. When we undertake a universal immunisation program, which has been done for decades, then some adverse effects are seen in children & pregnant women after vaccination,” said Rajesh Bhushan, Secretary, Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare

He highlighted about the adverse event already begun in countries like UK during immunisation of COVID-19.

“We can’t deny chances of an adverse event when COVID-19vaccination begins. In the countries where immunisation has already begun, especially in the UK, adverse events took place on the very first day. So, it is essential that states and UTs prepare for this too.” he added
