Serum Institute of India CEO Adar Poonawalla reportedly said that if approvals from regulatory bodies are in place in time, then a safe and effective vaccine against novel coronavirus may be available in India by January 2021.
 
 
“Based on the success of the trials in India and the United Kingdom, and if approvals from regulatory bodies are in place in time, then we can expect the vaccine to be available in India by January 2021, only if it’s proven immunogenic and efficacious,” Poonawalla said in an interview with Mint.
 
 
"The current data pertaining to the trials show that there are no immediate concerns pertaining to Covishield," he added.
 
 
He further informed that the vaccine will be affordable for all.
