This post claiming death within 2 years of COVID-19 vaccination is fake
New Delhi, May 26: As India battles the devastating second wave of coronavirus, a fake post claiming that people who are taking vaccines will be dead in two years after taking the jab has gone viral on social media.
A PIB fact check busted the fake news and said that the vaccine is completely safe.
"An image allegedly quoting a French Nobel Laureate on COVID-19 vaccines is circulating on social media. The claim in the image is FAKE. COVID-19 Vaccine is completely safe. Do not forward this image." PIB wrote on its official factcheck twitter handle.
