The Corona vaccine, which is being tested by the Serum Institute of India (SII), has completely rejected allegations of side effects. The company is testing a vaccine produced by Oxford University and AstraZeneca in India. A few days ago, a volunteer from Chennai claimed that the vaccine Kovishield had a bad effect on him due to testing. However, the company claims that the team investigating the complaint has found the complaint wrong.

The charges are not related to the vaccine trial
After a Chennai volunteer made negative claims about the vaccine, on Tuesday, the Serum Institute issued a statement saying that the vaccine is completely safe. The company said in its statement that all regulatory and ethical procedures and guidelines have been followed. After the complaint, DSMB and the Ethics Committee found in their investigation that the allegations made by the volunteer are not related to the vaccine trial.
What are the charges?
In order to deal with the corona virus, efforts are being made to make vaccines in many countries. As part of this effort, Oxford University and AstraZeneca have developed a vaccine. The Serum Institute is testing it. During a test in Chennai, a 40-year-old man complained that he had brain problems after 10 days of applying the vaccine. Under the complaint made by that person, the person has difficulty in remembering, learning new things, focusing on one thing or deciding. He has sent a legal notice to the institute and demanded a compensation of Rs 5 crore.
