THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Health minister K K Shylaja has said that Kerala is fully prepared for covid 19 vaccination. The minister said the row over opening new vaccines centres is baseless, and it will be opened if needed only in the next phase of vaccination.

“It is expected that Kerala will be free from the pandemic in the next financial year. The vaccine gives great solace. If enough doses are received then by April vaccination drive in the state could be completed,” the health minister told to a media house.

The health minister also ruled out the concerns of side-effects of the vaccine. Covishield does not have high side-effects. Meanwhile, K K Shylaja added that surveillance should be maintained even after the vaccination.
