Vij, who’s an MLA from Ambala Cantt, had on Wednesday mentioned the third part of trial of Covaxin will start within the state on November 20 and had provided to be the primary volunteer to get vaccinated.
Covaxin is being developed indigenously by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
Last month, the vaccine maker mentioned it had efficiently accomplished interim evaluation of Phase 1 and a couple of trials and is initiating Phase three trials.
Bharat Biotech had on Monday mentioned the Phase three trial of Covaxin will contain 26,000 volunteers throughout 25 centres in India and is being carried out in partnership with the ICMR.
It is the most important scientific trial carried out for a Covid-19 vaccine in India.
This is India’s first Phase three efficacy research for a Covid-19 vaccine, and the most important Phase three efficacy trial ever carried out.
The human trial of Covaxin had begun at Rohtak’s Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in July, Vij had mentioned earlier.
