The Drug Controller General of India had recently approved two vaccines against the Covid-19 for restricted emergency use in the country, paving the way for a massive inoculation drive.

Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech, and Covishield, manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, have been given approval. While Bharat Biotech has developed Covaxin with a whole virion inactivated virus, SII has engineered Covishield with recombinant Chimpanzee Adenovirus vector virus.

As Covishield was granted emergency use authorization on January 2 while its Phase 3 trial is still underway, the Subject Expert Committee was criticized for granting approval before an interim analysis was conducted or efficacy data made public.
