Ajay Shah: Market forces should determine vaccine prices | DataBaaz

Mar 13, 2021 13:43 IST

Govindraj Ethiraj speaks to Ajay Shah, Research Prof at Jindal Global University on why market forces should be allowed to determine vaccine prices. Currently, vaccine prices at Pvt hospitals in India are capped at Rs.250. Prof Ajay Shah says Government should not limit the ability of private players in doing the vaccine business.

Many health experts have argued that price caps on vaccine manufacturers are essential to ensure fair access & coverage but vaccine manufacturers say that pricing caps are a  big disincentive to an industry that is fulfilling a great public health necessity in very turbulent times.
