India may get a COVID-19 vaccine by March 2021, revealed Dr Suresh Jadhav, executive director, Serum Institute of India. 

“India may get COVID-19 vaccine by March 2021 provided the regulators speed up the process as multiple manufacturers are working on it,” Jadhav said at the India Vaccine Accessibility e-summit organised by HEAL Foundation in association with ICCIDD. “India will get 60-70 million doses of Oxford vaccine Covishield by December but the vaccines will come to the market in March 2021. The time between December and March will be required for licensing,” Hindustan Times quoted Jadhav as saying.
“India is heading fast towards vaccine development as two manufacturers are already in phase-3 trial and one in the phase-2 trial, while more players are joining the race,” the Indian Express quoted Jadhav as saying.
