Venugopalan Govindan, father of Karunya, who died post-vaccination, said AstraZeneca’s admission was “too late,” following numerous coincidences.

“AstraZeneca and SII should have stopped the manufacture and supply of these vaccines when 15 European countries either suspended or age-limited them due to deaths from blood clots that happened in March 2021, within a couple of months of the rollout of the vaccine itself, “said Govindan.

The parents have filed a writ petition seeking redressal and the appointment of an independent medical board to investigate their daughter’s death. When approached for comment by ET, SII declined to engage on the matter.

According to reports, AstraZeneca has conceded in legal documentation that Covishield, “can, in very rare cases, induce TTS (Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome).”

“In India, Covishield, which inoculated 90 per cent of the population, has performed commendably,” a senior person from a national Covid working group told ET, downplaying concerns about adverse reactions.

Govindan further alleged companies and the government had promoted Covid-19 vaccines as “safe and efficacious” without adequate data.

“The regulatory bodies that approved it and subsequently did not intervene to stop it when data emerged about the dangers are all culpable in the death of my daughter and countless others who have died after taking this so-called vaccine,” Govindan said.

“If sufficient remedies aren’t obtained, for the sake of justice and to prevent recurrence of this atrocity that was perpetrated in the name of public health, we will file fresh cases against any and all of those perpetrators because of whose actions the deaths of our children ensued,” he added.
