Pune: Athar Poonawala, CEO of Serum Institute of India, said that the approval to use the booster dose of Covovax vaccine will be given in 10-15 days.
Athar Poonawala later spoke to reporters at a function held in Pune, Maharashtra. At that time, the central government has sufficient stock of the serum institute of India’s corona vaccines such as Govishield and GovaVax. We are seeking permission to use these for booster dose vaccine as well. Permission for this will be available in 10-15 days.
The Kovacs vaccine has the potential to prevent the spread of Omicron virus, a mutated strain of the Corona virus. Therefore, giving it as a booster vaccine can provide protection. The country faced a huge threat when the corona virus spread. Everyone had to be vaccinated. In addition, we are supplying our vaccine to 70-80 countries. Thus, corona vaccines have played a major role in protecting our country and the world.
The main reason for this is the leadership of the central government. In addition, there is the contribution of many people including all state governments, health workers and manufacturers. We are all working together to achieve a common goal. Athar Poonawala said.
