Iran to Launch Mass Production of COVID-19 Vaccine in 40 Days

Iran to Launch Mass Production of COVID-19 Vaccine in 40 Days

Alwaght- Iran plans to produce one and a half million doses COVID-19 vaccine within the next 40 days.

Mohammad Mokhber, Director of Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam, said on Sunday the production will reach 12 million doses per month in the next six months, IRIB News reported.

Iran is under the United State's unilateral sanctions that have blocked the country's access to medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, and complicated the process of importing vaccines from other countries.

According to Mokhber, a plan to mass-produce the homemade vaccine is in final stages, and the production line is capable of producing some 120 to 150 million doses of the vaccine to cover the country’s needs.

The human trial of the vaccine will start in the next three days, he said. “To date, 60,000 people have called and enrolled for a vaccine test, and 30,000 of them met the conditions,” the official explained.

Of course, he continued, “in the first stage, we cannot accept more than 56 people, who must come from a variety of age, gender, region and ethnicity groups.”

In remarks on Sunday, Iran’s health minister said the country is capable of producing a coronavirus vaccine, calling on the researchers not to become disheartened and keep up their hard work.

“We will prove to the entire world that our domestically-produced vaccine is much better than vaccines produced elsewhere across the globe,” Saeed Namaki said.

Meanwhile, Iranian officials have assured people that attempts to produce domestic vaccines will in no way hamper efforts to import foreign brands.

President Hassan Rouhani has also assured people over vaccine supplies, saying last week that his administration is doing its utmost to deliver both domestic and foreign vaccine shots to people.

The country has moved neck-and-neck with the rest of the world, and even better than many countries, in trying to develop and manufacture an effective and safe vaccine for the disease, Rouhani said at a cabinet session on Wednesday.
