59% Indians won't rush to get the Covid-19 vaccine
COVID-19 vaccines have been under discussion in many circles on LocalCircles and many of you recently participated in the survey on plans to get the vaccine once its available. At the same time, we have discussed efficacy claims from 3 vaccine makers including the one that's most relevant for India at this point (Oxford-Astrazeneca) via Serum, the questions raised overseas and the adverse event in Serum trial and the non-disclosure.Below is the link to the survey report:Covid-19 Vaccine Acceptance surveyOnce again, we will escalate the concerns to the Government, both on hesitancy and on steps needed to avoid black marketing of vaccine when it does arrive. Do review and share the same with your social media contacts as its extremely important for fellow citizens, Government and even the industry. It is critical that through transparent information sharing the Industry and Government keep people updated so when the vaccine does arrive, there is a high acceptance rate. If you have additional inputs, questions on the same, do share. Also, if you have ideas on how other vaccines like the one by Moderna (storage temperature -20 degree C) and any upcoming ones can also be made available as alternatives in India, do share the same.
