DGCI (Drug Controller General of India) can stamp the permission within the next 10 days on the permission sought by the Serum Institute for the emergency use of the coviciled vaccine. Let me tell you that on the occasion of the foundation stone of the Agra Metro, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the country will not have to wait much longer for the vaccine.
“However, none of these applications have been sent to the committee so far and no date has been set for this,” sources said. It is notable that Pfizer has received emergency permission to use its vaccine in Britain and Bahrain. Britain has also become the first country to approve a vaccine for emergency use.
The Serum Institute sought approval in this regard on 6 December for the ‘Kovishield’ Kovid-19 vaccine from Oxford. On December 4, Pfizer sought approval from the central drug regulator for emergency use of the vaccine. At the same time, Bharat Biotech applied to the Central Drug Regulator on Monday for permission for emergency use of the vaccine.
