Serum key statement on vaccination in India
The Serum Institute of India (SII) said it had never exported vaccines to other countries at the cost of the people of India. It noted a nation like India has a vast population; it is challenging to complete the vaccination drive in just 2 to 3 months.
SII said it has many practical obstacles to achieve the target in India as there are several factors and challenges involved. Serum said by the end of this year only; it is likely to export vaccines to other countries. 'It would take two-three years for the entire world population to get fully vaccinated.', the SII has predicted.
