Bharat Biotech urges to avoid Covaxin in case of Fever and Health Issues:- Bharat Biotech, Hyderabad based pharmaceutical company is busy producing the vaccine for the people of the country after it received an immediate approval for Covaxin. Bharat Biotech along with Serum Institute of India administered the vaccine and the first phase of the vaccination drive is currently going on. There are several speculations that Covaxin was given approval when the trials are in the third phase. Bharat Biotech issued a clarification that the vaccination should not be given to those who have the history of allergies, fever, bleeding disorder or any serious health issues.
Bharat Biotech said that the vaccination may affect their immune system. Bharat Biotech also asked the people suffering with serious health issues to stay away from the vaccination and revealed that it is their personal choice to take the vaccination. There are some side-effects that are reported for Covaxin like itching, swelling, redness, body ache, headache, fever, nausea, rashes and vomiting.
"A severe allergic reaction may very rarely occur after getting a dose of the vaccine. For this reason, your vaccination provider will ask you to stay for 30 minutes after each dose of vaccine at the vaccination center for monitoring. Signs of a severe allergic reaction can include difficulty in breathing, swelling of your face and throat, a fast heartbeat, rash all over your body, dizziness and weakness" told Bharat Biotech in a statement.
