Why won't India need Pfizer's Corona vaccine? Health Minister Harsh Vardhan explained the reason
Vaccines are waiting to get rid of the corona virus all over the world. There are many Corona vaccine candidates in India too, which are showing better results in trials. Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has said that the country may not need the Corona vaccine of the Pfizer company. Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan reiterated that India may not need Pfizer vaccines in the war against the Corona virus, as other vaccines are being tested in the country, which have so far shown promising results in safety trials.
According to media reports, the Health Minister said that there is no point in considering Pfizer-BioNotech's vaccine, as the US regulatory authority has not yet approved its vaccine. He added that even if Pfizer's vaccine is approved, its manufacturers will try to provide the vaccine to their local population before supplying the vaccine to other countries.
India currently has at least five vaccine candidates, with a human trial for the Kovid-19 vaccine. Three of these vaccines are in the second and third phase trials to prove safety and effectiveness. The Serum Institute of India, along with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), is undertaking the third phase of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
At the same time, the Phase III trial of Bharat Biotech's Kovid-19 vaccine Kovaxin has started. The second phase of covicin can result anytime. Let us know that the pharmaceutical company Bharat Biotech is planning to introduce its vaccine (vaccine) for Kovid-19 in the second quarter next year. A top company official said that the company has this plan in case it gets the requisite clearances from the regulatory authorities of India.
In addition, Cadila Health's vaccine ZyCovD has also completed Phase II testing and is awaiting results. The follow-up time for this vaccine is also coming to an end. Apart from these three, Dr. Reddy's laboratories of India have tied up with Russian vaccine developers for the second and third phase trials of the Russian vaccine Sputnik-5 and work on it will start from this week.
Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan, who has been in a macabre form of Corona virus, has said that it is also the responsibility of the people with the state government to cooperate in controlling the corona and due to the negligence of some educated people, the entire Delhiites It has to bear the brunt.
