It's against informed consent: Manish Tewari on people won't be able to choose vaccine

Indian National Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari raised questions on COVAXIN's efficacy.

He said, "Many eminent doctors have raised questions with regard to the efficacy and safety of COVAXIN with government saying that people will not be able to choose as to which vaccine they would like to take.

This goes against the entire doctrine of informed consent." "If the vaccine is so safe and reliable and efficacy of the vaccine is beyond question then how is it that not a single functionary of the government has stepped forward to get themselves vaccinated as it has happened in other countries around the world?," he said.
