‘No complaint of Covid vaccine side effect in Manipur’

Imphal: No report of any side effects regarding the Covid-19 vaccine had arisen until now since the start of vaccination drive in Manipur, Manipur chief minister N. Biren Singh.

Talking to reporters at his secretariat, here Biren said the state government had been closely monitoring the vaccination programme held throughout the state considering all necessary criteria to be taken up before vaccination.

Many senior and experienced doctors of the state had been vaccinated since the launch of the vaccination programme on January 16 and currently vaccination for health workers is going on at 130 facilitation centres, he added.

Observing that the central government started the vaccination programme only after the vaccine had been scientifically proven as safe, he appealed to the public not to make negative comments about the vaccine without valid scientific proof. Instead of creating suspicion and panic in people’s mind with negative comments, any individual could come up with positive suggestions regarding the vaccination drive, the chief minister said.

“The vaccination programme would cover all the population in phase manner,” he said and appealed to the public to have patience while waiting for their turns.
