On Thursday, COVID-19 vaccine-maker Bharat Biotech announced that they have reduced the price of its vaccine Covaxin from ₹600 per dose to ₹400 per dose.
The company decided to decrease the price by ₹200 after its rival vaccine-maker Serum Institute of India (SII) reduced the price of its vaccine Covishield from ₹400 per dose to ₹ 300 per dose.
“Recognising the enormous challenges to the public health care system, we have made Covaxin available to State governments at ₹400 per dose”, Bharat Biotech said.
“With the greater part of the organization’s facilities and resources being diverted to COVID-19 vaccines, we continue to work towards offering superior COVID-19 vaccines and sincerely wish that this gesture enables our country toward a faster recovery,” the company also said.
