Who said #hesitancy was not a prob? My comorbid wife delayed taking shot by a month. Sr citizen neighbour pastered doctor son against vaccine. #Covaxin was not mocked? It was done till early April. Hesitancy was so common that bengal went slow on covax indent 1/n
Why all health staff, Sr xitizen didn't queue up 4 #vaccine in Feb-March? Centres wr idle. Data proves, Thr ws not equal push from all states either. All rushed 4 vax as #SecondWave struck. As in end April 50% on queue for vax wr above 60. This contributed to overcrowding. 2/n
Yes thr is now a #VaccineShortage. But part of it is perceived. Do we have enough manpower & other necessary infra to inoculate 3 USAs (90cr adult) at one go? V got feb-april. Cud USA vaccinate all in 3 months? On April 18, only 50% Americans wr vaccinated. De started ahead. 3/n

@amishra77 Here is my response to the fancy wish list of coterie;

#1 & #2 - It was a free and Center-managed vaccination, well managed for 3 months. Then some genius minds in states wanted credit, so accused Center of monopolising vaccines & demanded that states be allowed to procure

@amishra77 #3 The coterie needs tuitions on vaccine manufacturing, which requires BSL3 lab and on current affairs

Modi Govt already allowed 4 companies, Haffkine, Indian Immunologicals Ltd, Bharat Immunologicals and Biologicals Ltd and Bharat Biotech International, to produce #Covaxin

@amishra77 #4 Some more current affairs tuition is needed. Govt is already allocating funds for vaccines 👇…

I see a lot of concern on Twitter today about #B.1.617 variant evading immune response. I think it is likely more transmissible and hospitalizations and deaths increase if cases increase which is happening in India and is tragic.
However, t think B.1.617 will evade immunity from the two vaccines in India - Covaxin & AZ (nor the vaccines you have in UK - Pfizer, AZ, Moderna): This study on the #Covaxin vaccine (Bharat pharm) shows strong neutralizing Ab titers against B.1.617…
Moreover, and this is a KEY point, if T cells decrease our severity of disease to an infection (references here- will break them all down when have more time), what is our T cell response against the spike protein with AZ vaccine- COMPLEX and in breadth. How do we know that? Image

Let's take a look at all the instances cited in the letter one by one.


How Congress leaders, including Congress Chief Minister, ridiculed Indian-made-vaccine and created doubts in the minds of people, spurring #VaccineHesitancy

1. Fear mongering on vaccines, #COVAXIN, by #Chhattisgarh Health Minister TS Singh Deo

This continued through Feb'2021 too, when TS Deo Singh creating doubts over #Covaxin

2. Congress govt in #Punjab also refused to use COVAXIN & did not change their stance even when efficacy data came out! Here's Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu's remarks:

Question is what would #India spend on?
Did we have a successful vaccine ready prior to December 2020?
Answer is no.
The #USA gambled $16Bn on 7 vaccines in June 2020 . 3 succeeded, one in trials & 3 failed.
The #USA essentially lost $6-7Bn in the gamble.
Acceptable odds for us?
You make the mistake of thinking BB was successful in the first try . Dr Krishna Ella tried & rejected two prior vaccine designs before settling on Covaxin . Also covaxin needs BSL4 & BSL3 facilities so cannot be made everywhere.
Also other older facilities are being upgraded to BSL3/4 for Covaxin but these will come online in a few months from now , not before. Haffkine in Mumbai should produce Covaxin from December 2021, a facility in Odisha from June 2022 .

கரோனா வைரஸ் மற்றும் தடுப்பூசி பற்றி சில சந்தேகங்களும் பதில்களும்.

1) கரோனா வைரஸ் எதனால் ஆபத்தான வைரஸ்?
கரோனா வைரஸ் ஒரு வைரஸ். வைரசுக்கு பொதுவா மருந்து கிடையாது. பேக்டீரியாவுக்கு உண்டு. வைரஸை அழிக்க நம் உடம்பு தயாராக வேண்டும். சண்டை போட வேண்டும். #COVID19 #Covishield #Covaxin 1/n
குளிர் காலத்தில் வரும் சளி, காய்ச்சல் வைரஸ்களால் வரலாம். ஆனா அவை பெரும்பாலும் ஆபத்தானவை அல்ல. பெரிய பாதிப்பு வரும் முன்பு நம் உடம்பு சண்டையிட்டு அழித்து விடும். ஆனா கரோனா வைரஸ் மிக வேகமாக நம் உடம்புக்குள் பரவுவதோடு, நம் நுரையீரலை பாதிக்கும். #COVID19 #Covishield #Covaxin 2/n
உடம்புக்கு தேவையான ஆக்சிஜன் கிடைக்காது. மூளை முதல் உள்ளங்கால் வரை உறுப்புகள் பாதிக்கப்படலாம். அதனால்தான் கரோனாவில் இருந்து மீண்டு வர அதிக காலம் ஆகும். ஆனா அதிர்ஷ்டவசமாக பலருக்கு நம் உடம்பு நோய் எதிர்ப்பு சக்தியை உற்பத்தி செய்து காப்பாற்றி விடும். #COVID19 #Covishield #Covaxin 3/n

When we talk of Immunity we mean that our body has the resistance to fight or is impervious to a external threat. In the biological context it means we can fight of an organism.1/n

Mr. Maunmohan, Where were you?

Where were you Mr Maunmohan when your colleagues did Character Assassination of entire Scientific Community?

Where were you when medical professionals were essentially being called frauds by your party and its extended ecosystem?
India approved
two vaccines in early January 2021. It should have been a moment of celebration because one vaccine #Covaxin was completely indegenously developed and manufactured while the other vaccine #Covishield was also locally manufactured. What followed though was one of the most
shameful chapters in modern Indian political discourse.
No Patriot will forget the campaign done by top Congress leaders who went on to shame Bharat Biotech's Covaxin in front of the world.

Where were you Mr Maunmohan at that time when your friendly media discredited Covaxin

OPINION: “I would bet on #Novovax,” a doctor’s take on how to make the #COVID19 vaccine jabs more effective…

By Dr. Vipin Vashishtha Image
The relentless march of #COVIDSecondWave in India continues. The daily case count has gone beyond 200,000 cases per day. Everybody, including the Health Ministry, seems clueless on how to tackle and contain this monstrous surge.

#Novovax #COVID19
The nervousness of the current establishment reflects in their somewhat knee-jerk reaction to give a go-ahead signal to all foreign-produced #COVID19 vaccines that have been granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in other countries.
