Claims on non approval of certain vaccines available globally is false: Govt

REPRESENTATIONAL IMAGE
Vaccination is one of the gamechangers in the fight against the Covid Pandemic.
 
The liberalised and accelerated phase three Covid-19 vaccination drive has already begun in the country.
 
Despite the government’s best efforts to vaccinate all the beneficiaries in the shortest time, several misinformations and myths are being spread about the ongoing vaccination drive.
 
Amid the alleged shortage of Covid-vaccine in the country, a claim has been made that Centre has not approved certain vaccines available globally. 
 
The Central government has termed this claim as false and maliciously distorted.
 
AIR correspondent reports, the Central Government has proactively eased entry of vaccines approved by concerned agencies of US, UK and Japan and World Health Organisation's Emergency Use Listing into India in April.
 
These vaccines will not need to undergo prior bridging trials.
 
The provision has now been further amended to waive off the trial requirement altogether for the well-established vaccines manufactured in other countries.
 
No application of any foreign manufacturer for approval is pending with the drugs controller.
 
The Central Government has remained engaged continuously with all the major international vaccine manufacturers right from mid-2020.
 
Multiple rounds of discussions have happened with Pfizer, Jhonson and Johnson and Moderna.
 
Government has also offered all assistance to have them supply or manufacture their vaccines in India.
