The Serum Institute of India on Sunday said it will seek damages in excess of Rs 100 crore from a Covishield volunteer who alleged the experimental vaccine triggered serious side effects, including virtual neurological breakdown.
In a statement, the SII said that the volunteer chose to go public and "malign" the company's reputation despite being specifically informed by the medical team that the complications he suffered were independent of the vaccine trial he underwent.
