The petitioner claimed that his daughter Snehal Lunawat, a medical student, was assured that the COVID vaccines are completely safe, and pose no risk or threat to the body.
She was also compelled to take vaccine at college since she was a health worker.
But due to the side effects of those vaccines, she passed away on March 1, 2021, it was contended.
Pertinently, Lunawat submitted that the Central government’s Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) committee on October 2, 2021 admitted that the death of his daughter was due to side effects of Covishield.
Lunawat stated in his plea that the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) and Director of All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) gave false assurances that vaccines are safe, a narrative which was supplemented by State authorities without verification, due to which several other health workers may be compelled to take the vaccine.
