Now there is no need to wait long for the Corona vaccine. India may approve the emergency approval of the vaccine being produced by Oxford and AstraZeneca by next week. Indeed, additional data has been submitted to the authorities concerned on behalf of the local manufacturer of the drug company.
If the vaccine is approved, India will be the first country in the world to use this vaccine. British drug controllers are still studying its test data. India, which has the highest vaccine production capacity in the world, is now planning to give the vaccine to the public from next month.
The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is considered safe for low-income and hot countries, as the vaccine is relatively inexpensive compared to other vaccine companies, is easy to transport and can be stored for long periods of time even at normal fridge temperatures.
On December 9, CDSCO first reviewed the applications of the three companies and demanded more data from all the companies. It also includes the Serum Institute of India, which is manufacturing the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. Let us know that the Serum Institute is the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world.
The Serum Institute has handed over all the data to the authorities. Further information is awaited by Pfizer Company. The AstraZeneca vaccine is still said to be 62% effective, if the patient is given two doses, but if the patient is given half the dose, it will be up to 90% effective.
Sources say that the serum is ready for this and the institute can make up to six to eight crore doses. However, India has not yet signed a vaccine supply deal with any company.
