The government on Thursday termed as baseless allegations that vaccine certificates were issued to the dead on the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The government clarified that there was a case in Madhya Pradesh in which the vaccinator made a mistake. On September 17, the birthday of Prime Minister Modi, 2.5 crore doses of Kovid vaccines were administered in the country and a record was set. On the question of giving vaccination certificates to dead people in some states, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said in a media briefing, ‘An incident happened in Madhya Pradesh and we found that the registration for vaccination was done when the person was alive and in which The day he was supposed to come for vaccination, he unfortunately died. He said, ‘The vaccinated person accidentally pressed the button next to that name. However, the mistake was later rectified. Terming the allegations of adding data entry figures pending on the prime minister’s birthday to the numbers also baseless, Bhushan said, “Such allegations have come to the fore in relation to Bihar. We investigated and found them to be completely baseless. In Bihar, on an average 3-5 lakh people are vaccinated daily, but it would be completely unrealistic to say that they are not given digital certificates, they will not get SMS and data will not be uploaded. He said, ‘We have spoken to the channels and media organizations broadcasting this news. If they have any specific details about the names of villages and people, please share. We are waiting for the details.’
