On January 3, two vaccines – Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin and Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covishield manufactured by Serum Institute of India were approved for ‘restricted emergency use’. Several other vaccines are in the pipeline and are conducting trials. This vaccination drive is slated to begin by January 13.

“Earlier, India used to import PPE kits, masks, ventilators, and testing kits from outside, but today it is self-reliant. Today, India is ready with two ‘Made in India’ Covid-19 vaccines to save humanity,” Modi said at the 16th ‘Pravasi Bharatiya Divas’ convention.
