In recent times, many vaccine producers in the world have claimed good results, some of which are under trial in India.

The vaccines undergoing trials in India include Serum Institute’s AstraZeneca, Bharat Biotech’s COVAXIN, Russia’s Sputnik, Cadila Healthcare Ltd. and Biological-E’s vaccine.

Recently, the third trial of the co-vaccine has been completed, in which about 26 thousand people took part.
