In the second case of adverse effect following immunisation (AEFI), a policeman reported Bell’s palsy — facial paralysis — after being administered Covid vaccine here today.
The cop is out of danger, but he is being monitored by a medical team. Health officials said the 50-year-old frontline worker had come to receive the first dose of the vaccine at Government Mata Kaushalya Hospital. As soon he received the vaccine, he developed Bell’s palsy. He was given steroids to reduce inflammation, said health officials.

Besides, an employee of the Health Department also reported minor side effects on Tuesday. However, officials said it was due to his ongoing heath issues. He had received the vaccine last week.
Dr Veenu Goyal, district immunisation officer, said it was the second AEFI case.
Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Satinder said, “We have informed the higher authorities regarding the case. We are constantly monitoring his health.”
