The vaccine production capacity of India is termed as the “best asset” that the world has today. While calling India to play an important role in the global vaccination campaign, he stated so. He even hopes that the world understands this asset and uses it well to the needful. To meet the rising demand for the vaccine, even India has managed well to ramp up the production and step up the exports.

Production of the vaccine on a huge scale from India

India has gifted over 55 lakh doses of covid vaccine to the neighbouring countries. Even India has also planned to gift many doses of vaccine to Oman, CARICOM countries, and the Pacific Island States. India was fighting and still also doing so against the pandemic. They are trying hard to eradicate this deadly virus from the whole world and so making new ways to supply large doses of vaccines to other parts of the world. The export has taken place for Brazil, Morocco, and Bangladesh on a commercial level. Further supplies to Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Canada are also likely to take place.

Plan of “New Delhi” for the supply of the vaccine

New Delhi is planning to supply 1 crore or 10 million vaccine doses to Africa and 10 lakh to the health workers of the United Nations under the GAVI’S COVAX facility. Even in the coming days, they are also planning to supply vaccines to Egypt, Algeria, Kuwait, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Marshall Islands, and Samoa which are way out of India’s traditional spheres of influence. Also, some of the doses which are part of the exports are being supplied to the countries like Nepal at concessional terms.

Achievement of India in the areas of vaccine development

India has achieved many capabilities in the medicinal area and also in vaccine development. And also as the days are passing, India is becoming much more self-reliant. The health workers think that the more India becomes self-reliant, the more the world will gain profit from it. The UN chief also stated that the way India is trying their level best to supply the vaccines, after the pandemic, India will play a big role in the emerging new world order.

The PolicyTimes Suggestions

  • The way India is supplying vaccines to the neighbouring countries and also to other parts of the world is truly a proud matter. Even up to now, it has become the best asset for the production capacity. If it continues like this, then India can make a huge record in the upcoming days.
  • The Prime Minister must also take up some new methods so that the further plans of supplying the vaccines are fully achieved and the poorer countries can also get it well without any cost.
