Serum Institute of India dismissed the claims of India that vaccine would come out after 73 days. As per them there is no such thing, the news about the launch of vaccine would come after trials.
Issuing a statement the SII said, “Presently, the government has granted us permission to only manufacture the vaccine and stockpile it for future use. Serum Institute of India, would like to clarify that the current claims surrounding Covishield`s availability in the media are completely false and conjectural”, the statement read.
The SII claimed that it will be sold commercially after successful trails. “Covishield will be commercialised once the trials are proven successful and all the requisite regulatory approvals are in place. The phase-3 trials for the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine are still underway. And only once the vaccine is proven immunogenic and efficacious, SII will confirm its availability, officially”, the statement said.
