NEW DELHI: India's vaccination drive against COVID-19 will begin on January 16. In the first phase, the COVID vaccine will be given to 3 crore people in the country, including health workers. Covishield, developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, and Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech, will be used for vaccination in the country. Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan has come out against the myths regarding the side effects of the vaccine.

The Union Minister denied reports that the COVID vaccine can cause infertility in both men and women. Taking it to Twitter, Harsh Vardhan said that the COVID vaccine usually has the same side effects as other vaccines. 'After being administered COVID-19 vaccine, some individuals may have side effects like mild fever, pain at injection site & body ache. This is similar to the side effects that occur post some other vaccines. These are expected to go away on their own after some time,' he wrote on Twitter.
