First batches of SII Covishield vaccine left Pune for different parts of India

AMN / Pune

The first batches of Covishield, the vaccine produced by Serum Institute of India (SII) left Pune to for different parts of India. Three trucks carrying Covishield vaccine reached Pune International Airport from Serum Institute of India’s facility in the city during the early hours of Tuesday and are being shipped to different locations in the country.

The vaccination will start on January 16. According to Sandip Bhosale, MD of SB Logistics, the company handling air transportation of the vaccine from Pune airport, a total of eight flights will transport Covishield vaccine from Pune International Airport to 13 different locations on Tuesday. The first flight, which left for Delhi Airport, is slated to reach the national capital on Tuesday morning.

“The first consignment of the vaccine has been dispatched from the facility of Serum Institute of India here. We have made elaborate security arrangements,” Namrata Patil, DCP (Zone 5), Pune said.

The consignment left in three temperature-controlled trucks and pooja was performed before vehicles left the facility. According to sources cited by news agency PTI, the government has committed to purchase 4.5 crore more doses of Covishied from Serum Institute of India at Rs 200 per dose plus GST by April.

Last week, the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) gave a go-ahead to two vaccines, Covishield by the Serum Institute of India and COVAXIN by Bharat Biotech. Questions were raised on the clearances given to COVAXIN without phase-3 trials. The government, as well as Bharat Biotech, have, however, maintained that the vaccine is ‘100 per cent safe’.
