The Haryana government has received an expression of interest from an international pharma company headquartered in Malta to provide up to 60 million doses of Sputnik V vaccine to the state, it said.

The state had floated a global tender for C-19 vaccine shots through the Haryana Medical Services Corporation (HMSCL) on May 26. The tender was closed on June 4, but no bid was received during the period, the government said in a statement.

However, the Pharma Regulatory Services Limited in Malta has given an expression of interest to the HMSCL to provide doses of Sputnik V vaccine manufactured by the Gamaleya Institute and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), it said.
