Days after India kickstarted the biggest inoculation drive across the country, roughly about 50% of the expected people have been given the first dose in the first three days since it began on Saturday.
The Centre said that a total of 3.81 lakh priority groups have been inoculated as of 5pm on Monday. While on the other, at least 580 cases of adverse effects have been reported so far.
During the said period, a total of 381,305 people were given doses in 7,704 sessions.
Two persons- a 52-year-old Ward Boy from Moradabad and a 42-year-old health worker from Bellary, Karnataka, have ostensibly died after getting themselves a vaccine shot.
Officials have informed that concerns over the safety issues have deterred many people to take the jab as the number has dipped from 4,319 on Saturday to 3,593 on Monday in Delhi.
This comes after some doctors expressed apprehension on Covaxin, the indigenously developed vaccine by Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech.
The vaccine is still under Phase 3 trials and the doctors said they were not sure how effective it is against Covid-19.
