Medical students who got second dose of vaccine tested positive: Severity of the infection will be less after second dose, says doctors
After receiving second dose of vaccination, around 12 students at Bengaluru Medical College tested positive for corona virus. Some other colleges in Karnataka also reported 10 to 12 positive cases. Sources said infection is spreading from medical students to their non-medical students like engineering and other graduating students. According to the data 3.48 lakh healthcare workers have received the second dose across the state.
Dr V Ravi said, ”All Covid vaccines authorized for human use only guarantee protection against disease and death. They do not protect against infection.”
Dr Manjunath, director of Sri Jayadeva Institute said the severity of infection was less in the health care workers who took second dose of vaccine at Jayadeva Institute.
