#SupremeCourt is hearing a plea seeking a declaration that mandating vaccination for COVID-19, in any manner whatsoever, even by way of making it a pre-condition for accessing any benefits or services, is a violation of rights of citizens and unconstitutional
Adv Prashant Bhushan: There were phase 3 trials of these vaccines at all. In absence of informed consent the mandate of such vaccines is unconstitutional @pbhushan1 #VaccineMandate
Bhushan: increase in hospitalisation is rampant in countries where vaccination has been there. vaccine is a a matter of individual decision and it is I who will be ill due to this virus. whether i take medication or not is my absolute right

VE vs omicron
"Among those who had
received 2 doses of AstraZeneca, there was no effect against #Omicron (against symptomatic disease) from 20 weeks after the second dose."

That's among those who have completed their 2nd #COVISHIELD (AZ) dose before Aug 22nd of 2021.
(1/8) Image
#HCWs were vaccinated earliest in India, with majority completing their second dose of AZ as early as April 2021. (That's >35 weeks since 2nd dose)

They currently face greatest exposure risk as noted in many large outbreaks in hospitals and affect delivery of healthcare.

At-risk population were vaccinated next in India, and so were the elderly. Vaccine efficacy has shown to have more profound immune waning in elderly individuals.

These populations are an urgent priority, to prevent severe disease & death (The 2x dose still does that well).

How covid-19 vaccines exposed India’s adverse events reporting system #aefi
bmj.com/content/376/bm…
@PriyankaPulla
#NoVaccineMandates
Key Points:-
• Hospitals are failing to report Adverse Events Following Immunisation #AEFI
• Patients and their families don’t know how to report
@MoHFW_INDIA @mansukhmandviya
• Slow pace of investigation – Only 89 of 946 deaths investigated. Only 6 of 26 cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) investigated.
• Non-communication of findings with families

Temos reiterado a recomendação ao Ministério da Saúde que adote proatividade no desenvolvimento de estudos para subsidiar o uso de vacinas em idades pediátricas.

Não podemos ser expectantes, adotando postura passiva, esperando o "fabricante apresentar documentos".
É praticamente um consenso na comunidade científica que plataformas de vírus inativado sejam seguras e que podem ter preferência para idades pediátricas. A #coronavac de produção 🇧🇷, vacina segura e eficaz, já é utilizada em crianças em diversos países.
Custo/Dose:
#coronavac 🇧🇷: 10,30 USD.
Novo contrato da #pfizer 🇺🇸: 15 USD.

A passividade só serve para alimentar narrativa política no contexto da polarização.

A proatividade serve a política pública de saúde, protege o #SUS, a ciência e salvará nossas crianças do #SARSCoV2.

A gentleman & his lady several years after returning home to England from The Colonies, invited an old domestic to their stately home.
The elderly chap who had since evidently moved up in life, drove a spanking new car with the wheels crunching on the winding gravel driveway.
Overlooking their own new fortunes they said
~You have done well for yourself ~ with a smile not quite reaching their eyes.

~ Come! Come in!~
Invited the lady offering him tea but looking on in some trepidation as the guest held the wafer fine cup in his big hands.
Meanwhile the gentleman stayed out for only a minute longer to key the shining car.

It had been a while since he had his eye on this model.
To think the domestic had had the temerity to come & visit them flaunting it.

So no, he didn’t feel the least guilty as he ran the key

Mumbai Police has launched an investigation into a fake COVID-19 vaccination racket, where people are suspected to have been injected with distilled water instead of the vaccine. A special investigation team led by DCP Vishal Thakur will head the case.
newsbytesapp.com/news/india/mum…
Reportedly, 390 residents of the Hiranandani Heritage Club in Kandivali (West) were administered what they believed were COVID-19 vaccines on May 30. However, they were actually injected with distilled water. This does not harm people. The beneficiaries also paid Rs. 4.56 lakh.
Further, only 120 beneficiaries received vaccination certificates and they had the names of different hospitals on their certificates. An inquiry into these hospitals revealed that there was no agreement with them to conduct a vaccination drive. That's how the scam was unearthed.

A 3rd wave of covid infections in India is unavoidable and may hit the country within 8 weeks, AIIMS chief Dr. Randeep Guleria said. The vitality of the new wave however, would depend upon vaccination coverage and level of adherence to COVID-19 protocols.
newsbytesapp.com/news/india/aii…
Dr. Guleria added, "As we have started unlocking, there is again a lack of COVID-appropriate behavior. We don't seem to have learned from what happened between the 1st and the 2nd wave." He further said, "It all depends on how we go ahead in terms of COVID-appropriate behavior."
So will this wave affect children more? A recent seroprevalence study was done by #WHO and AIIMS on 10,000 samples. Citing that, the Indian govt asserted that the level of antibodies was similar in both adults and children. So, the new wave might affect every age group equally.

भारताकडे सध्या 2 लसी आहेत- कोविशील्ड आणि कोवॅक्सिन. कोवॅक्सिनच्या 2मात्रातील अंतर 4 आठवड्याचे आहे आणि हे अंतर योग्य असल्याचे सातत्यपूर्ण अध्ययनात आढळले आहेः डॉ. अरोरा,अध्यक्ष, एनटीएजीआय यांचे कोविशील्डच्या 2 मात्रांमधील अंतर 12-16 आठवड्यापर्यंत वाढवण्याच्या निर्णयाबाबत

#COVISHIELD वरील सुरुवातीच्या अध्ययनात खूप जास्त प्रकारचे वेगवेगळे निष्कर्ष होते. युके सारख्या काही देशांनी सुरुवातीला ही लस देताना 2 मात्रांमध्ये 12 आठवड्यांचे अंतर ठेवले.

India has currently 2 vaccines-COVISHIELD & COVAXIN. The interval between 2 doses of COVAXIN is 4 wks & consistent studies have shown that this is the right interval: Dr. Arora, Chairman, NTAGI explains why we decided to expand gap between 2 #COVISHIELD doses to 12-16 wks
(2/n)🧵
Initial studies on #COVISHIELD were very heterogeneous. Some countries like UK went for 12 wks dose interval when they introduced the vaccine.While we were privy to this data, when we decided our interval, we went for 4 wks interval based on our bridging trial data:Dr Arora

Bharat Biotech attacking reports and papers by other researchers is bad form and dangerous for its own good name. They should focus on the integrity of their own research efforts and leave it to independent scientists to critique both their own and others' research.
@BharatBiotech is not in competition with other vaccines. #Covaxin does need to to produce more antibodies than #Covishield to be a successful product. Covaxin needs merely to produce enough of an immune response to be protective against SARS-Cov2.
@BharatBiotech would do better to focus on publishing their much delayed Phase-3 trial data - now promised for July - with genome-sequenced evidence in respect of delta variant. This is not a zero sum game.

94 crore people need to be immunized in India as of now. So that's 188 crore doses of #CovidVaccine needed. 28 crore doses already made. Around 160 crore doses needed. 25% of this to Private sector is 40 crore. Assume 3/4th of this 25% get #COVISHIELD and 1/4th get #Covaxin
At ₹600 per dose that's a cool ₹18,000 crore for @SerumInstIndia and at 1200 per dose, ₹12000 crore for @BharatBiotech . Pvt.hospitals get to make approx. ₹6000 crore as service charge.Overall cost to public ₹36,000 crore. @adarpoonawalla has said Covishield got him a small
profit at ₹150/dose and Krishna Ella said one dose of Covaxin wd be cheaper than a bottle of mineral water. Taking them at their word had Govt fixed the price of vaccine even at ₹300 per dose,procured them directly and distributed to Pvt sector the 25% doses they said they wd,
