New Delhi: The price of COVID-19 vaccine Covishield has been slashed from Rs 400 to Rs 300 per dose for all states and union territories, which can get the vaccine directly from Serum Institute of India (SII) from May 1.

Serum Institute CEO Adar Poonawalla termed the decision a ‘philanthropic gesture’.

“As a philanthropic gesture on behalf of Serum Institute of India, I hereby reduce the price to the states from Rs 400 to Rs 300 per dose, effective immediately; this will save thousands of crores of state funds going forward. This will enable more vaccinations and save countless lives,” Poonawalla tweeted.

There has been public outcry over the price of the vaccine since it was announced by the SII.

Covishield was priced at Rs 400 and Rs 600 per dose for states and private hospitals respectively, while the corresponding Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin rates were set at Rs 600 and Rs 1200.

  5. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know a
    lot approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it
    or something. I think that you simply could do with a few percent to
    pressure the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is
    excellent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  7. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior
    to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    Appreciate it!

  8. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I
    find this topic to be really something that I believe I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely large for me.
    I am having a look ahead to your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
