Team Udayavani, Apr 25, 2021, 12:25 PM IST

Recently, a social media post claimed that women should not take the COVID-19 vaccine five days before and after their menstrual cycle. The post claimed that vaccines should not be taken as “immunity is very less” during that time.

However,the Centre on Saturday dismissed the post as “fake. PIB in a tweet said, “Fake post circulating on social media claims that women should not take #COVID19Vaccine 5 days before and after their menstrual cycle. Don’t fall for rumours! All people above 18 should get vaccinated after May 1. Registration starts on April 28 on cowin.gov.in”

Several doctors also took to Twitter and other social media platforms to debunk this claim and appealed to everyone to get vaccinated soon.

The central government earlier this week announced that everyone above 18 years of age will be eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 from May 1

The countrywide vaccination drive was rolled out on January 16 for healthcare workers, which further extended to frontline workers from February 2 onwards.

The second phase was initiated from March 1 to vaccinate people above 45 years of age who account for more than 80 percent of COVID-19 mortality in the country. The next phase of the Covid-19 vaccination drive for citizens above 45 years of age began on April 1.
