30 Crore doses of Corbevax ready; 5 Crore distributed across India: Biological E Ltd Md


India has opened the COVID-19 vaccination for the age group of 12-14 years from today. Hyderabad-based vaccine maker Biological E Limited supplies Corbevax, which is used to vaccinate children in this age group.

The registration process for the age group can be done through the CoWIN portal. However, states have been urged to book separate centers to avoid mixing vaccines with other age groups.

Government estimates place around 7 million children in the age bracket of 12 to 14 years. The government placed an advance order for 30 crore doses in August last year.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18’s Shereen Bhan, Mahima Datla, MD of Biological E said, “So far, Biological E has already manufactured 30 crore doses which was our commitment to the government. Of these 30 crore doses, we have currently provided almost 5 crore doses, which have been distributed to 17 centers across the country to be deployed for the expansion of the immunization program up to the age of 12 to 14. years.
