Covaxin Doesn't Contain Newborn Calf Serum: Ministry Of Health And Family Welfare

Latest reports have been coming in from the Ministry of Health and Family welfare which have given clarification on Covaxin medicine.

As per latest reports according to the Ministry there have been some social media posts regarding composition of the COVAXIN where it has been suggested that COVAXIN contains the newborn calf serum. 

As per Ministry of Health and Family Welfare facts have been twisted and misrepresented in these posts.

According to sources Newborn Calf Serum is used only for preparation of vero cells.The vero cells are completely destroyed in process of viral growth. 

The grown virus is also killed and purified. This is then used to make final vaccine and in final vaccine formulation no calf serum used as per Health Ministry.

Hence, the final vaccine (COVAXIN) does not contain newborn calf serum at all and the calf serum is not an ingredient of the final vaccine product according to Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
