New Delhi : The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Friday rubbished rumors that the COVID vaccines cause infertility. The ministry said in a statement that COVID vaccines do not cause infertility. At least six different types of Kovid-19 vaccines will be available in India soon, the ministry said. We hope to procure 30-35 crore doses in a month, so that 1 crore people can be vaccinated in a day.
Dr. Narendra Kumar Arora, President, COVID-19 Working Group, National Immunization Advisory Group (ATAGI) said, when the polio vaccine came and was being given in India and other parts of the world, then there were rumors that Children who are being given polio will have a negative impact on the fertility of those children in the long run.
Anti-vaccine lobby spreads misinformation
He said that such misinformation spreads the anti-vaccine lobby. We should know that all vaccines undergo rigorous scientific research. There is no such side effect in any vaccine. I want to completely assure everyone that this kind of misinformation creates misunderstanding among the people. Our main focus is to save ourselves from corona virus, save our family and society. So, everyone should go ahead and get vaccinated.
Arora further said that if the effectiveness of a vaccine is 80 per cent, then 20 per cent of the vaccinated people can be infected with mild covid. Vaccines available in India have been able to reduce the spread of the virus. Arora said that if 60-70 per cent of the people are vaccinated, the spread of the virus can be stopped.
Vaccines Have Side Effects, But Not Serious
He said that all vaccines have mild side effects as far as side effects are concerned. These include mild fever, fatigue, and pain at the injection site for a day or two. It doesn’t cause any serious problems. Most people do not experience any side effects after a COVID vaccination, but that doesn’t mean the vaccines aren’t effective.
Speaking on the vaccination of children, he said that the trial of Covaccine has started on children between the ages of two and 18. Testing on children is going on in many centers across the country. Its results will come to us from September to October this year. Children can also get the infection, but they do not become seriously ill. However, the virus can pass from children to others. Therefore, children should also be vaccinated.
Dr. Arora said, only 20 to 30 percent of people can get fever after getting vaccinated. Some people get fever after taking the first dose and nothing happens after the second dose. Similarly, some people do not feel anything after the first dose, but fever comes after the second dose. It varies from person to person and it is difficult to say with certainty.
