Meanwhile, 58-year-old Dr. Akhtar Sheikh, associated with the AYUSH Doctors Association, says that until the complete success of the vaccine is reported, it is not right to take the vaccine. Volunteers should avoid vaccine trials. He said that it is right that volunteers should be given vaccine first because they save their lives by risking their lives. But there is no haste in this.

Dr. Sheikh said, “Healthworkers are also human beings. They have to save the people. What will they do if they fall ill or have side effects? How to play with someone’s life until 100% guarantee is given? What will happen if face paralysis happens? The body of a human being is complex, one suffers the other.

These voices are getting stronger in Mumbai city. Along with the social media campaign, there were panel discussions in which students, lawyers and activists appealed not to require the vaccine as part of the campaign.

Feroz Mithiborwala, activist of Awaken India, said that “we think it will do a lot of damage.” The results of the trial so far have not convinced the vaccine. People are more afraid of the vaccine than the corona. I would like to say this to people, do not judge yourself under pressure. Do not take the vaccine until you are completely satisfied, I am not taking it. ”


Mumbaikar Krishna Shah says, “The news that has come out during the clinical trial of Kovid vaccine around the world is disturbing. Trials are being done by putting a curtain on these news. I do not get it right. I do not feel the need to take this vaccine at all. I think my immunity is good to fight Kovid and it will help me, I can’t take the risk. ”

At the same time, the Association of Medical Consultants, Mumbai, with 11,000 medical consultants, is appealing to keep trust in people regarding the vaccine. Association President Dr. Deepak Baid says, “The infection that I will have is that my cough in the nose and mouth can be felt by others. Even if I have taken the vaccine. It can also be spread by a person with a vaccine, so it is important that more and more people take the vaccine. Taking anything will not cure everything. Others will be afraid of getting sick. I may be saved but I can feel others. The more people take, the less the risk of spreading the epidemic. Recently, it has passed on this foundation. I think the vaccine is safe, I will. ”
