Chairman of Zydus Cadila, Mr. Pankaj Patel has confirmed that their phase-2 trials of ZyCoV-D are moving in the right direction. He added that the data about the vaccine would be available in the November end and the vaccine would be ready for use from the month of March. 

There is huge expectation and interest about the results of the trials of vaccines that have been granted approval for the vaccine development because the number of Coronavirus positive cases has been increasing across the world now. 

It must be noted that across the world as many as11 vaccines have been undergoing Phase-3 large scale efficacy tests. It is now revealed that the results of these tests would be available between now and the end of 2020 or early 2021.

Information is that once these vaccines pass Phase-3 trials and get approved then they would be manufactured in large scale and distributed across the world.

The distribution of the vaccines has been an issue now. At present, the vaccines developed by companies like Pfizer, BioNTech and Fosun Pharma are undergoing Phase-3 trials. It was brought out that Pfizer would be manufacturing1.3billion doses worldwide by 2021 end if Phase-3 trials yielded results. This was as per the Pfizer chief executive Mr. Albert Bourla. Founded in the year 1849 with its headquarters in New York in the USA, Pfizer is a multinational pharmaceutical corporation is well known.

In India, the distribution system has been well established. Therefore, there would not be any issues in distributing vaccines from the manufacturing hubs to various parts of India including hospitals. This was according to Mr. Pankaj Patel. He hinted about key issues regarding the availability and storage of the vaccines.

Storage temperature of 2 to 8 degree Celsius would be needed to store the 3 vaccines that are being developed across India. Point is that for managing the storage temperature threshold, capabilities exist but the parameters would be different for other vaccines developed across the world.

Mr. Pankaj Patel later threw light on enhancing the abilities of the healthcare workers and how to prepare them for administering vaccines for the people across India.
