The drug regulator of India has approved the extension of shelf life of Bharat Biotech‘s Covid-19 vaccine Covaxin up to 12 months.

The company today announced that it has received the approval from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) for the extension of shelflife of the vaccine up to 12 months, from the date of manufacture.

“This approval of shelf life extension is based on the availability of additional data, which was submitted to CDSCO,” added the Hyderabad-based company.

The vaccine was initially approved by the drug regulator for a shelf life of six months, when stored at two to eight degree celsius. It was later extended to nine months.

The longer shelf life is expected to help optimise and improve the use of vaccine.
