"The behaviour of some of our leaders, who in spite of full knowledge of the facts on vaccine supply, appear on TV daily and create panic among the people is very unfortunate. This is not the time to play politics. We need everyone to unite in this fight," NiTi Aayog member added. Myth 7: Centre is not taking any step to vaccinate children Dr Paul said as of now, no country in the world is giving vaccines to children and added that the WHO has no recommendation on vaccinating children. "There have been studies about the safety of vaccines in children, which have been encouraging. Trials in children in India are also going to begin soon. However, vaccinating children should not be decided on the basis of panic in Whatsapp groups and because some politicians want to play politics. It has to be a decision taken by our scientists after adequate data is available based on trials," he said.
