The government authorities have decided for large scale production of the locally made coronavirus vaccine PakVac, quoting sources.
The decision has been taken to initiate preparations for mass scale production of the single-dose PakVac from the next month, sources said.
The National Institute of Health Islamabad will prepare monthly three million doses of PakVac and the government have been informed about the decision, according to sources.
The decision to produce vaccine in large scale, has been taken in view of the increased demand of the vaccine, sources said.
“Monthly production of three million vaccine doses will ensure sufficient availability of the corona vaccine jabs, which would significantly reduce the country’s dependence on other countries. The raw material of the vaccine will be provided by China’s Cansino Biologics,” sources said.
