The American pharma giant Pfizer announced, early this week that its Covid-19 vaccine had proven to be 90% effective in preventing the infection. But the big question is, how and when will it be available in India?

According to a report by India Today, the Union health ministry said during a briefing this week that the country’s national expert group on vaccine administration is in talks with both domestic and foreign vaccine manufacturers – be it domestic or foreign. It also mentioned that the company is ready for talks with the Indian Government. Health Secretary Alex Azar said in a report by Reuters that after FDA authorization, the US will receive about 20 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine per month.

December Seems to be The Month

Further the reports mentioned that Covid 19 vaccination will begin with the elderly in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, healthcare workers, and first responders. The goal is to complete these by end of January. So, for Indians, it seems to be wait and watch till our very own vaccine comes out, which is also in the trial stage.
