Biological E’s Corbevax could be India’s cheapest vaccine
Hyderabad-based Biological E’s Corbevax vaccine priced at Rs 250 per dose could become the cheapest in India. At present, Serum Institute of India is selling two doses of Covishield at Rs 600 to state governments, both shots of Covaxin produced by Bharat Biotech are sold for state governments at Rs 800 while Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine is priced at Rs 995 per dose.
According to sources, the price of two jabs of Corbevax vaccine likely to be reduced to Rs 400. The Central government already paid Rs 1,500 crore in advance to the Biological E for supply of 30 crore Corbevax vaccine doses.
