Union minister Mansukh Mandaviya yesterday said that the government has given approval to Bharat Biotech’s Ankleshwar-based manufacturing plant to produce C-19 vaccine Covaxin. “Govt of India approves vaccine manufacturing facility for production of @BharatBiotech’s #Covaxin in Ankleshwar, Gujarat,” Mandaviya tweeted.
The approval would help increase availability of C-19 vaccines in the country, he added.
“Following PM @NarendraModi ji’s vision of #SabkoVaccineMuftVaccine, this will increase vaccine availability & accelerate the world’s largest vaccine drive,” the minister who heads both Chemicals and Fertilisers and Health ministries, noted.
The Hyderabad-based firm had noted that it would utilise the manufacturing plant of its wholly-owned unit – Chiron Behring, to add another 200 million doses of Covaxin.
