India is expecting its first batch of Jhonson & Jhonson Covid vaccine by October. The drug regulator of India had provided its emergency authorization to J&J last month.
Jhonson & Jhonson Covid vaccine is a single shot vaccine and around 43.5 million doses are likely to arrive next month. The vaccine is filled and finished in India by a partner of the US drugmaker.
It may however be noted that the Indian government has not yet signed any deal with J & J related to supplies of the vaccine. Bio-E will do the formulation and make 5 ml vials, the sources revealed.
