Haryana Minister, Who Got Trial Dose Of Covid Vaccine, Tests Positive

Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij tweeted this morning to say that he has tested positive for coronavirus. Mr Vij, 67, said he is admitted at the Civil Hospital in Ambala. The announcement comes a little over two weeks after he was administered a trial dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

The minister also urged all those who had come in close contact with him to get themselves tested.

“I have been tested Corona positive. I am admitted in Civil Hospital Ambala Cantt. All those who have come in close contact to me are advised to get themselves tested for corona,” Mr Vij tweeted.

“The antibodies against the infection build up in a human being only after a specific number of days pass after the second dose of the vaccine is taken, since this is a two-dose vaccine. The minister in question has taken only one dose of the vaccine,” the Union Health Ministry said after Mr Vij’s announcement.

On November 20, Mr Vij, who is also Haryana’s Health Minsiter, was administered a trial dose of a coronavirus vaccine as part of the third phase trial of Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin. He had earlier announced on Twitter that he will be the first volunteer in his state for the anti-Covid vaccine.
