As race for vaccine nears last lap, Modi reviews India’s strategy
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held a review of India’s vaccination strategy amid indications that the fast-developing Oxford-AstraZeneca shot may be eligible for emergency use authorisation in India as early as next month.
“Important issues related to progress of vaccine development, regulatory approvals and procurement were discussed,” the PM tweeted.
The PM reviewed the aspects of emergency use authorisation and manufacture and procurement of medicine. As the results of Phase 3 trials arrive, regulators will speedily examine these for according authorisation for use. Adar Poonawala of Serum Institute, which is manufacturing the vaccine in India, has indicated that it can approach the Indian regulator soon after the UK partner reveals the phase 3 trial results. This means the first shots may be available for priority health worker recipients in India by January.
A press release said the vaccine supply chain was being enhanced and non-vaccine supplies were being escalated. Medical and nursing students and faculty will be involved in training and implementation of the programme.The go nment has provided aid of Rs 900 crore to support research and development of vaccines.

..He is going to claim..that he made the vaccine or atleast he gave the idea...and the plan
why no govt advisor is telling respected PM that he look v ugly in grown beard and hairs.. is he trying to copy Amir khan
He is illetrate. What kind of suggestion can he give except hatred and polarization.
Salute to Modi for his tireless n proactive measures in all fields. Had India not been a victim of Congress misrule for the 60 odd years in between, we could've been a far greater economy n World power by now.
Meeting after meeting after meeting. .. ...
Good for nothing burden on this jinxed Nation of ours.
First priority to distribute the vaccine to must be for All Patriotic Indians and especially Hindus.
Biharis, you are entitled to recieve the shot first as the pre poll promise by BJP. Enjoy.
Modi is taking India to greater heights and India will be the beacon of hope for our world.
