Those who refuse vaccine may not get free Covid treatment-1

Bengaluru: Since the inoculation coverage has not crossed 50% among healthcare workers a month since the drive, the government plans to deny free Covid treatment to those who are refusing the vaccine, should they contract the infection in the future.

Mission director at National Health Mission, Karnataka, Dr Arundhati Chandrashekar said that the government is indeed thinking of such an order but nothing of the sort has been issued yet. She pointed out that there is a hesitancy among the people in the case of taking the vaccine now when compared to the time when the pandemic was at its peak. She relates the cause of this to the rumours that are pertaining to the vaccine. “There are several rumours which are leading to hesitancy and we need to spread awareness,” she said.

“Frontline and healthcare workers who have been inoculated must act as ambassadors for the drive,” said Dr K.V. Trilok Chandra, commissioner, health and family welfare department.

Dr V Ravi who is a member of the state’s Covid-19 technical advisory committee said that the no vaccine in history was produced at such a fast rate and everyone must understand the positive side of vaccine production. He emphasised on the importance of following covid protocols in a strict manner.
