Today, there is an additional supply of vaccines around the world. This is in stark contrast to the situation a year ago, when India decided to suspend its exports to vaccinate its population.
The Serum Institute has decided to stop the production of corona vaccine. It says it will not create new doses of the vaccine. The reason is that the company has a large stock of vaccines. His stock of vaccines has increased to 200 million.
“We’ve stockpiled 200 million doses of the vaccine. We had to decide to stop production in December. I announced we would give it away for free. Whoever needs it can take it,” Adar Punawala, CEO of Serum, told a Times Network program on Friday. There is a fear of ending.

“We are concerned about the loss of this dose of vaccine,” Punawala said. This statement by Adar Punawala shows that there is a shortage of vaccines in the world today. In fact, after the outbreak of the corona epidemic, scientists around the world focused on developing its own vaccine. Vaccine companies have also invested heavily in this.
Today, there is an additional supply of vaccines around the world. This is in stark contrast to the situation a year ago, when India decided to suspend its exports to vaccinate its population. Now in India, the government has allowed all people over the age of 18 to get booster doses. This will again increase the immunity of a large part of the population against corona.
Punawala also demanded that the government reduce the time difference between the second dose of corona and the booster dose. Currently, there should be an interval of 9 months between the second dose and the booster dose. Punawala is in favor of reducing it to six months. Serum is the main supplier of the vaccine under the WHO’s Kovacs program. He said Serum was preparing a global pandemic deal. Under this, if required in future, raw material for making vaccine will be provided easily.
