The Vaccine headline is masking the reality! Vaccine wait to continue

Apr 15, 2021 12:17 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The govt may have given the nod to fast track approvals for foreign produced vaccines but will not translate to immediate roll-out of sought after vaccines such as Pfizer, Moderna and J&J. Here is why-:

  • Pfizer and Moderna both have short-term and long term supply obligations for current production of vaccines
  • Pfizer and Moderna have supply commitments to at least 12 countries
  • Pfizer has committed to deliver 200 mn doses to US by July 2021 
  • 500 mn Pfizer doses have been committed to the EU by end of 2021 
  • Both US, EU have done a pre-payment of $2 bn, $14.95/dose respectively for the drugs
  • Moderna has also received $1 billion from the US to deliver 300 million doses by the end of July 2021 and 160 million doses to EU by end of 2021

    J&J roll-out now faces hurdle due to reports of clots and pause in usage across parts of US
