Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya informed that India will be resuming the export of vaccines under ‘Vaccine Maitri’ in the fourth quarter starting from October.

According to the reports, Minister Mandaviya stated that the vaccine export will resume fulfilling the commitment towards COVAX in line with the motto ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’.  The decision to restart the vaccine export has come ahead of PM Modi’s visit to Washington where vaccines are likely to be discussed at a summit of the leaders of the Quad countries.

Mandaviya further stated that the surplus supply of vaccines will be used to fulfil the commitment towards the world for the collective fight against Covid-19. COVAX is co-led by Gavi, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and WHO.

Further, he added that it is due to the relentless efforts and guidance of PM Modi that India was simultaneously undertaking Research and production of Covid vaccines in line with the global developments. India’s vaccination drive has been a role model for the world, and it is marching ahead with great speed. More than 4 times we have crossed the one crore mark since the drive commenced on January 16.
