On May 1, ahead of the next phase of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, the Serum Institute of India (SII) has announced the prices of its COVISHEILD vaccines.

SII welcomed the Centre’s announcement to vaccinate all above 18 and asked for the next two months, and it would address limited capacity by increasing vaccine production.

“Going forward, 50% of our capacity will be served in the Government of India vaccination program,

and the remaining 50% capacity will be for state governments and private hospitals.”

SII’s COVID-19 vaccine COVISHEILD will be available for 400 / dose in state government hospitals, while at 600 / dose in private hospitals.

He said that given global vaccine prices, they are ensuring that their coronavirus vaccines are cheaper than any other vaccines in the world.

SII also stated prices per dose of global vaccines in the private market. American vaccines are available at over Rs 1500 per dose,

for Russian and Chinese vaccines at over Rs 750 per shot.

The Serum Institute of India stated that due to the complexity and urgency of the situation,

it is challenging to supply it independently to each corporate entity.

“We would urge all corporate and private individuals to use vaccines through state-facilitated machinery and private health systems.

After 4-5 months, the vaccines will be made available in retail and free trade,” Said SII.

Earlier on 19 April, the Center announced that people over 18 years of age would take the COVID-19 vaccine jab from 1 May.

The world’s largest COVID-19 vaccination campaign began in India on 16 January 2021. According to the provisional report,

India has so far administered 13,01,19,310 vaccine doses through 19,01,413 sessions at 7 am on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, 2,95,041 new coronavirus cases and 2,023 deaths were reported in India in

the past 24 hours, the highest since the epidemic.
