Indian Council of Medical Research, Scientist and Head of Epidemiology and Communicable Diseases Division, Dr. Samiran Panda while speaking to ANI assured that both Covishield and Covaxin are safe and there should not be an iota of apprehension about its safety. "Both Covishield and Covaxin are safe and there should not be an iota of apprehension about its safety. We should all try to dispel the myths and misconceptions around both vaccines." Further appreciating India's scientists, Panda said, "In older days, it would take 20-30 yrs to get a vaccine or medicine out in market.
