Mythbusters by Dr. Pragya Kumar

July 21, 2021

Misguided hesitancy and fake information about vaccines are a substantial threat to the elimination of the pandemic.  Overcoming this is crucial in India’s fight against Covid-19. We require a target-based approach along with equitable and accessible communications focusing on the needs and concerns of individuals, groups, and communities to solve this. Today, we share creative assets to bust some of these myths and empower you to fight misinformation with medically accurate verified information.

Only together we can win this war against Covid-19.

Accelerating vaccinations for millions of vulnerable people across India

VaxNow is bringing together the Government, Private Sector Organizations, Community leaders, NGOs and the Media to accelerate the vaccination of vulnerable people in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Bihar. These partners will collaborate to reach the unreached through an agile, geographically contextualized plan which will help overcome barriers for vulnerable communities. The criteria for selecting these communities is: people with the highest access barriers, the highest chance of contracting COVID and people living in overcrowded places.

Dr. Pragya Kumar, AIIMS Patna addresses some crucial Vaccine related questions and addresses the most common myths amongst our communities.

    1. अभी तक मुझे कोरोना नहीं हुआ, क्या फिर भी मुझे वैक्सीन लगवानी चाहिए?
    2. क्या वैक्सीन की पहली और दूसरी Dose लगवाने के बाद भी कोरोना हो सकता है?
    3. क्या वैक्सीन ज़हरीली हैं?
    4. क्या हम दो अलग अलग कंपनी की वैक्सीन लगवा सकते हैं?
    5. मैंने सुना है के वैक्सीन लगवाने के बाद कुछ लोगों की मौत हो रही है। क्या यह सच है?
