- People like Chetan Bhagat and Sadanand Dhume lobbied for American vaccines like Pfizer and Moderna to be introduced in India’s vaccination drive and that they should be prioritised by private players.

Since India launched its vaccination program in January this year, the critics, anti-nationals, and perpetual Modi haters came with different analogies and propaganda to discredit the vaccines produced in India as well as the vaccination drive of the government.
People like Chetan Bhagat and Sadanand Dhume lobbied for American vaccines like Pfizer and Moderna to be introduced in India’s vaccination drive and that they should be prioritised by private players.
However, in the third wave, the cases are rising exponentially in the United States and other western countries that have used Pfizer and Moderna’s m-RAN vaccines for vaccination.
Now research led by Case Western Reserve University and Brown University has revealed that COVID-19 antibodies produced by the Pfizer vaccine decreased more than 80 per cent in senior nursing home residents and their caregivers within six months after receiving their second dose.
“With nursing home residents’ poor initial vaccine response, the rise of breakthrough infections and outbreaks, characterisation of the durability of immunity to inform public health policy on the need for boosting is needed,” said the authors of the research study.
The number of cases is increasing in the West and the companies like Pfizer and their agents (people like Anthony Fauci) are suggesting a “booster shot” to ‘increase’ immunity.
European regulator, European Medicines Agency (EMA), is also looking at the need for booster dose, as recommended by Pfizer. In Europe, the death toll is rising, and in the last one and a half years of the Covid-19 pandemic, life expectancy in countries like Italy has declined by more than a year.
Whichever country used the Pfizer vaccine is struggling to overcome Covid. The Indian government kept itself at arm’s distance from Pfizer’s vaccine despite being repeatedly lobbied by the Western company and its lackeys.
Today, India has administered the highest number of vaccines in the world, manufactured by Indian companies. Except for the state of Kerala and to some extent Maharashtra, Covid is under control. In the last month, India administered more vaccines than the G7 nations combined. The vaccination numbers are crossing 1 crore per day regularly, and the experts have said that now even if India faces the third wave, its impact on life and economy would be limited.
The point is not Indian vs foreign vaccines. The point is enough vaccines and enough supply. And for that we need them from all over right now. Save the nationalism for Independence Day. Right now let's save lives at any cost. Please.

A few months ago, people like Chetan Bhagat were rooting for Pfizer’s vaccine. “Well, we needed Pfizer’s vaccine more than they needed us. We could have saved lives if we kept our ego down and said ‘how can we make it work Pfizer’ rather than ‘why can’t you listen to us.’ Lives could have been saved,” Chetan said in one of his rather mind-numbing and preposterous tweets.
Why has clearance been denied to #Pfizervaccine ? Let all vaccines become available in the market and let consumers decide. “ Atmanirbhar” should not become 1970s style protectionism. #COVIDVaccination pic.twitter.com/aGmPmn993k

The likes of Sagarika Ghose, who trust everything western blindly, and hate Indian products to the core, had as early as February began campaigning for Pfizer. She had aggressively asked back then, “Why has clearance been denied to (the) Pfizer vaccine? Let all vaccines become available in the market and let consumers decide. ‘Atmanirbhar’ should not become 1970s style protectionism.”
Indian liberals were willing to give a complete pass to the fact that Pfizer has been demanding blanket immunity from countries to supply them with its vaccines. This includes protection from all civil and criminal cases under the countries’ jurisdiction, and also a waiver of all responsibility if the vaccines throw up some unexpected after-effects.
India has been wiser from the world to maintain a safe distance from Pfizer and did not give in to lobbying. Today, with the huge success in vaccination driven, and the failure of Pfizer, the Modi government stands vindicated.
