More than one Covid-19 vaccine is under consideration to cater to large population, says Dr Harsh Vardhan
Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said considering the large population size of India, one vaccine or vaccine manufacturer will not be able to fulfil the requirements of vaccinating the whole country.
He was responding to people’s queries on his social media accounts as part of the fifth episode of his Sunday Samvaad.
The Heath Minister said, India may have to tie up with more than one vaccine manufacturer to ensure that every one in the country receives protection against the coronavirus when a vaccine becomes available.
Dr Harsh Vardhan stressed the need for making sure that the most vulnerable groups get it first.
