The Karnataka Association of Resident Doctors (KARD) has demanded the state government to allow healthcare workers to choose the Covid-19 vaccine that will be administered to them.

A letter written to Health and Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar mentions that resident doctors in several districts in the state feel they are being discriminated against. At present, Covaxin is being administered only in district hospitals of Chikkamagaluru, Hassan, Ballari, Shivamogga, Chamarajanagar, and Davangere.
