It congratulated the Indian scientists, medical doctors and the government for bringing out two Indian vaccines against Covid-19.

“India is heading towards becoming super power with research and development in the field of modern medicine. IMA rightfully stands firm as the natural and professional stakeholder in this achievement not only in the development of the vaccine but also in delivering it,” the IMA statement said.

IMA said it stands with the scientists in endorsing the safety and efficacy of both the vaccines, so public awareness and countering myths being spread social media becomes its priority.
