Corona Vaccine: In the message being shared with the video, a person from India is claiming to have been vaccinated using an empty syringe instead of applying the vaccine.
Avoid viral rumors in the name of vaccination
Immunization campaign has also been intensified in the country amid the second wave of Corona. In the first phase, where more than 45 years of high risk group people were being vaccinated, in the second phase, all the people above 45 years were being vaccinated. Now, to give more momentum to this campaign, a decision has been taken to provide vaccine to all the people above 18 years of age in the third phase. Registration for this will start from April 28, while appointments will start from May 1.
Since the first phase of vaccine, there have been many gullions among the people. For example, taking a vaccine worsens health… There can be a corona by applying the vaccine… Vaccine should not be taken during periods… etcetera. However, all misconceptions have been cleared by the government and the health ministry. Meanwhile, a video is becoming viral on social media regarding vaccination.
What’s in a viral video?
In the video that went viral on social media, a person is sitting on a chair to get the vaccine installed. The nurse comes. He has a syringe in his hand. She is talking to that person. In the video, he is not even shown filling the vaccine dose. The syringe is empty and injects the person with the same empty syringe and fixes that person. Through this video, an attempt is being made to prove that people are being vaccinated with empty syringes.
Government told the truth of viral video

PIB has a fact check team, which refutes rumors and fake information related to the government and departments related to the government and tells the truth on behalf of the government.
