Latest Vaccine Updates Are Not Enough COVID 19 Vaccines Until 2024 Says Adar Poonawalla, CEO of Serum Institutes
The Indian Serum Institute of India has partnered with five major global companies to produce vaccines
According to CEO Adar Poonawala, it will take 4 to 5 years for everyone around the world to reach the vaccine
Anyone hoping to get the vaccine from Corona by the end of the year is shocked. A big statement comes from the Serum Institute of India, the world’s largest vaccine producer. The company’s CEO, Adar Poonawalla, says that even by 2024 such a vaccine will not be ready so doses can be made available to all the people of the world.
According to Adar Poonawalla, pharmaceutical companies are still unable to increase their production capacity so much that vaccines can be made available worldwide. He said it will take 4 to 5 years for everyone around the world to reach the vaccine. If a person needs a dose of the corona, then 15 billion doses are needed for the whole world.
No cold chain system for vaccine
According to Adar Poonawala, there is another problem in delivering vaccines to 1.4 billion people in the country. There is no cold chain system for the transport of vaccines. After the vaccine is ready, it should be stored in the freezer. After that, it needs a cold chain system to send it to the places according to the requirements.
He said I don’t see a scheme that can deliver the vaccine to more than 400 million people in the country.
Goal: to deliver 1 billion doses of vaccine
The Pune-based company Serum Institute of India is working with five major companies around the world to manufacture the vaccine. These include the pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and Novavax. The Serum Institute wants to supply 1 billion vaccines. Under the agreement with AstraZeneca, the Serum Institute makes vaccines for 68 countries and with Novavax for 92 countries.
