Big News: India may get corona single dose vaccine next week

New Delhi: The wait for a single dose vaccine to prevent the corona epidemic will soon end. The vaccine will be available in the country from next month. It is learned that the first batch of the vaccine will arrive at the Central Laboratory at Kasauli next week for testing. The batch will be tested in two separate labs at Kasauli and Pune. The entire process may take about two weeks, after which the vaccine may be available for vaccination.

Johnson & Johnson Pharma Company has developed this single-dose vaccine. Recently, the Government of India has approved the emergency use of the vaccine. At present, the company has been allowed to import the vaccine, but under the contract with Hyderabad-based Pharma company Biologic E, its domestic production will also start in the coming days.

A senior official of the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) said that Johnson and Johnson will have to seek permission again for domestic production. Only one dose of this vaccine is enough, and its first batch can reach India anytime within the next one week. He said that recently a laboratory at Pune has also been recognized for vaccine testing. This facility is available in three labs in the country.
