New Delhi: The Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) granted permission to Bharat Biotech’s indigenous COVID vaccine ‘Covaxin’ and Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covishield vaccine for restricted use in emergency situation.
On Saturday, the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) panel had recommended granting approval for restricted emergency use of Bharat Biotech’s indigenous COVID vaccine ‘Covaxin’ in India.
This is the second vaccine to have got approval from experts. The Subject Expert Committee (SEC) set up by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) has reportedly been reviewing Covaxin’s application for emergency use.
A government press note said that the CDSCO recommended for granting permission to Bharat Biotech for “restricted use in emergency situation in public interest as an abundant precaution, in clinical trial mode, especially in context of mutant strain infection.”
The Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, which is called Covishield in India, had also received recommendation for emergency use “subject to multiple regulatory conditions” in the country.
