Moderna Covid vaccine becomes 4th jab to get emergency use approval in India: Govt
The Indian government on Tuesday granted emergency use approval (EUA) to US-based pharma company Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine, making it the first internationally-developed vaccine and the fourth such jab to be approved in the country.
“New drug permission has been granted to Moderna, the first internationally developed vaccine. This new drug permission is for restricted use,” said Dr. VK Paul, Member-Health, Niti Aayog.
“There are four vaccines now Covaxin, Covishield, SputnikV and Moderna. We will soon close the deal on Pfizer as well,” Pual added while speaking at a routine health ministry conference.
The senior official also added that Moderna will be administered in two doses in India.
Earlier today, India’s drug regulator DCGI has granted permission to Mumbai-based pharmaceutical company Cipla to import Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for restricted emergency use in the country, official sources said on Tuesday
