Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya: India will be first to make DNA-based jab

Jul 21, 2021 13:22 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Tuesday told Rajya Sabha that India will be the first country to develop a DNA-based Covid-19 vaccine even as other manufactures are steadily ramping up production.

“It is a matter of great pride for us that our scientists will be the first to develop a DNA vaccine,” the minister said.

Mandaviya was referring to drug maker Zydus Cadila, which has applied for emergency use authorisation of its DNA vaccine.
