The News Cover: Questions have already been raised about the price difference in the open market for Covishield vaccine. Prices are low for the center. But the state will have to buy the same vaccine at more than double the price. In the case of private hospitals or nursing homes, the cost of the vaccine is more than three times. Why such duplicity! According to the Serum Institute of India, the Covishield vaccine center will be available at Rs 150. But in the case of state and private hospitals, the price of this vaccine will be 400 and 600 rupees respectively. Since then, the question has arisen, why the price of the vaccine will not be the same in times of danger across the country! This time Sajal Serum Institute argued for themselves.

From May 1, everyone over the age of 18 will be vaccinated across the country. Meanwhile, Serum has said that the comparison between the price of the vaccine in the Indian market and internationally is meaningless. Serum claims that Covishield is still the cheapest vaccine sold on the open market. A limited number of vaccines will be given to private hospitals at a cost of Rs 800, the agency said in a statement. Covishield is relatively inexpensive as a vaccine used to prevent the spread of deadly viruses such as covid. Ticker prices were kept very low from the beginning. Because many countries had advanced funding for the production of this vaccine.

Ginger Punawala, CEO of Serum, said his company has been producing vaccines for five decades. Ticker prices have never been exorbitant. He also claimed that the comparison of Kovishield prices in the international and Indian markets was baseless. Ginger Punawala claimed that the price of this vaccine was kept to a minimum from the beginning.

He said vaccine production began as a defense program. So the price of the vaccine was low from the beginning.
