Haveri: After Agriculture Minister BC Patil on Tuesday courted controversy for taking COVID-19 vaccine at his home instead of going to the designated hospital, a show-cause notice has been issued to Haveri District RCH Dr Jayanand by the National Health Mission.

A show-cause notice was issued to the district’s RCH, noting that as per the GoI’s orders, the COVID-19 vaccine could only be administered at medical facilities or hospitals.

Patil, 64, and his wife took the vaccine at his Hirekerur residence in Haveri district, on the second day of the vaccination drive to cover people aged above 60 and 45 plus with co-morbidities.

Patil tweeted, “Took the #COVID19Vaccine with my wife, at my Hirekerur house from the Govt. doctors today. While ”Made In India” vaccines are being immensely appreciated by many countries, some vested interest groups are spreading false information about the vaccines.”

Several people raised questions on his decision to take the vaccine at home. Health Minister K Sudhakar said the protocol is to get it in the hospital. He expressed dissatisfaction over the conduct of Patil and said the medical team should have persuaded him to come to the hospital.

“Unless there is a prior permission, no one is allowed to go home to vaccinate. It is wrong to go home to administer a vaccine,” Sudhakar said, adding that he would issue a circular to the doctors not to administer vaccines at home.
