The Gujarat government will try to bear the cost of coronavirus vaccination "as far as possible" so that people get it free, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said on Saturday. The hospital opened an internal investigation, and on Monday, said it had found that a worker "inadvertently removed" the vials on Friday while reaching for other items in the refrigerator, and then failed to put them back in an "unintended human error".
Asked what will happen if complications are noticed after vaccination, Jain said emergency rooms will be set up at the centres, and those getting the vaccine dose will be kept there under observation for half an hour.
Aurora Health initially said the doses were accidentally taken out from refrigeration after a pharmacy technician discovered the vials outside the refrigerator on December 25.
