On prioritizing access to vaccines, he said, "Although 55% of the population is below 50 years of age, as per availability of vaccines healthcare workers should get the vaccines first, then people over 60 years with comorbidities, followed by the rest of the populace".

Researchers did, however, state that the findings of these early-stage clinical trials will prove useful during phase-3 clinical trials of China's Covid-19 vaccine candidate.

In light of concerns raised by lower-income countries, the WHO, Gavi vaccine alliance, and Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations established the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility (COVAX) that aims to ensure the fair distribution of safe and effective vaccines against the disease. Besides, the phase 3 clinical trial of the vaccine commenced in the UAE last week, the IANS report said.

Gamaleya had conducted phase 1 and 2 trials in Russian Federation of only 76 patients, wherein the vaccine was shown to induce strong immune response among the participants.

Sputnik V, the world's first registered vaccine developed by Russian Federation against Covid-19, has been approved for conducting an adaptive phase 2 and 3 trial in India.

Chinese drug companies have five vaccines in final stages of testing but none is approved for public use. Experts were expecting that the vaccine will completely inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

"It's hard to predict now for how long the effect of the vaccine will last".

Researchers reported that the BBIBP-CorV vaccine produced anti-body response in people 60 years of age or older, and we believe that further testing will provide more details about current research. Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has asserted that 400 million vaccines will be made available by next year.

China has said that while reasonable profits for companies are permitted, Covid-19 vaccines should be priced close to cost. "However, Dr Swaminathan reiterated WHO's position against the unregulated spread of the virus in order to achieve herd immunity". We have a Novavax vaccine that also started in South Africa and, most recently, the Johnson&Johnson vaccine that also started in South Africa.
