Sinovac coronavirus vaccine offered by Chinese city for emergency use costs $60

China's Sinopharm offers experimental COVID-19 vaccines to students WSJ

Professor XiaoMing Yang from the Beijing Institute of Biological Products Company Limited said, "Protecting older people is a key aim of a successful Covid-19 vaccine as this age group is at greater risk of severe illness from the disease".

A Government spokesperson said: "The science is clear - vaccines save lives, which is why we are leading a global effort to find a Covid-19 vaccine. This data will further strengthen the clinical development of Sputnik V vaccine in India".

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, announced on Friday that he had received the COVID-19 vaccine. Hundreds of thousands of people have been given experimental vaccines in late-stage trials as part of an emergency inoculation programme launched in July.

The trial was not created to assess efficacy of the vaccine, so it is not possible to say whether the antibody responses induced by the vaccine, called BBIBP-CorV, are sufficient to protect people from SARS-CoV-2 infection. While Sputnik V is now undergoing Phase-3 clinical trials involving 40,000 volunteers in Russian Federation, a Phase-3 clinical trial of the vaccine has also commenced in the UAE last week.

Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine Delayed Until At Least Late November
That time line makes it unlikely a vaccine will be available before the US election as President Donald Trump has promised. The vaccine must reduce the risk of infection by at least 50% in order to be considered for FDA emergency authorization.

Atul Sharma, Founder & Managing Director, HealthScape, said, "Historically, we never expected any unprecedented pandemic like COVID-19 but within a year, we are at the verge of vaccine development".

Dr Jadhav addressed the Indian Vaccine Accessibility e-Summit. It is expected that the Corona vaccine will be developed in the country at the end of the year or early next year. However, the biggest challenge lies in its accessibility. For this, we need to prioritise the accessibility depending upon the vulnerability of the populace and take some strong action within the time limit.

Recently, while attending an online WHO question-and-answer session, Dr Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist, World Health Organization, reiterated that the WHO's stance against allowing the virus to spread unchecked to reach herd immunity, emphasizing that the concept should be discussed only within the context of a vaccine. The group, headed by Niti Aayog member Dr V K Paul and co-chaired by health secretary Rajesh Bhushan, has studied allocations for early-phase vaccinations proposed by the CDC, Atlanta and the WHO while charting India's framework for equitable and need-based access.
