When are we getting Covid vaccine? This govt portal has all updates
Amid the race to develop a potential Covid-19 vaccine in India, the Indian government today launched an online portal for information and updates on the various Covid-19 vaccine being produced in the country, announced Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan.
The online portal available on the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) site, will be a repository for all information related to vaccine development in India.
Earlier reports suggest that in the first stage, the ICMR vaccine portal will reflect the information on Covid-19 vaccine development in India. However, with time, the web portal will be strengthened with data available for all the vaccines used to prevent various diseases.
“The ICMR has always attempted to address itself to the growing demands of scientific advances in biomedical research on the one hand, and to the need of finding practical solutions to the health problems of the country, on the other,” the portal reads.
Meanwhile, Serum’s CEO Adar Poonawalla calling the distribution of a Covid-19 vaccine to 1.3 billion population of India, “concerning challenge” said that the government may need ₹80,000 crore over the next one year for distribution of covid-19 vaccine to every person in India.
