Our vaccine production situation different from many other countries. On what basis Covishield was being made in India? It's Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine,you can say it's British-designed product. It was made in India as vaccine owner saw India as an efficient production venue: EAM
Along with that the ability & approval to make in India, came an obligation to supply it to a large part of the world. So, people have to understand, it was not that vaccine production started in India, it was invented by an Indian, owned by an Indian, produced by an Indian: EAM
It was a truly international collaboration. When there is an international collaboration, if somebody gave you a vaccine to make in India, then you have to do your part, otherwise, it doesn't work: EAM Dr S Jaishankar at Global Dialogue Series
It also came with support from the Covax initiative. So, there was an obligation to support the Covax initiative to give vaccines at a low cost to a number of nations: EAM Dr S Jaishankar at Global Dialogue Series
