The Serum Institute (SSI) said it would make 300 million doses of the Corona vaccine by December. The Institute’s Executive Director, Dr. Suresh Jadhav said that the vaccines will be launched as soon as the license is received from DCGI. The Serum Institute collaborates with Oxford University and AstraZeneca to produce the vaccine. Dr. Jadhav said that the serum is working on 5 different products. Of the dosas that will be made, half will be sent to India and half to Milinda-Bill Gates’ organization Gavi to help the poor countries.
Recommendation of trial of Russian vaccine: The Expert Committee of CDSCO has recommended the second phase trial of Russian vaccine Sputnik-5 in India. Approval can be given in two days.
When will the vaccine be received?
Dr. Jadhav said- We will make the data of Phase III trial available to the regulator DCGI in December. If the regulators are satisfied, then we can get a license for emergency use of the vaccine in a month with marketing authority. Then we will go to WHO for prequalification. Vaccines will then enter the market.
Who will get it first?
Serum said- Health workers should be first on the priority list for vaccination. The second number is the elderly above 60 years. Those under 18 years of age are undergoing very few tests, so it may be that their numbers will come later. Citizens between 18 and 50 years of age can be vaccinated in the vaccine.
