On #VaccinateIndia, Dr Sumit Ray, Head of Department, Critical Care Medicine, Holy Family Hospital clarified some of the common misconceptions about COVID-19 vaccines


Steroids are necessary for a subset of people- patients who are on oxygen and ventilator. It is true for any medicine that it has to be given at the right time to the right patient. In COVID-19 initially there is a virus in the body and inflammatory response that the body puts up as a result.

If there is too much information without context, medicine has to be learned over a period of time. If that is not done then there is infodemic. Secondly, it has exposed our own doctors and communities' ability to analyse the data. In medicines, it has to have a context when we talk about medication.
