The union government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is gearing up for the historic massive Coronavirus vaccine drive across the nation which will be started on January 16.



Even though the vaccination process was started, reports are abuzz in media climbing that the vaccines to cure the novel Coronavirus are being made available in the black markets.

As per these media reports, the high-profile people in Kartanaka were offered the vaccines by some unknown people. The vaccines were offered in exchange for bitcoins reportedly.

It is also said that the high-profile people in Karnataka, who received calls over the alleged vaccines against the pandemic approached some of the doctors and medical representatives to confirm the authenticity of the vaccines.

The doctors have warned the high-profile people to not believe such calls and offer and even advised them to stay out of this and said buying vaccines that are not open for sale would land them in legal trouble.

The doctors urged the public to not rush to get the vaccines from the fraudsters and wait till the union government rolls the vaccine doses and makes them available for public use.
