AstraZenaeca Promises 'Not To Profit' From COVID-19 Vaccine”

All eyes are on AstraZeneca's vaccine trials as the company has emerged as the leading candidate for production of a vaccine after positive results were noted from its preliminary stage human trials.

Appreciating the efforts of India in its contributions to vaccine development and preparedness, Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, USA, Dr Anthony Fauci said, India's research and development capacity will be integrated into global efforts to address COVID-19 crisis. We are talking about the booster dose, which essentially means an additional dose of the vaccine which is given periodically to increase the immune response of the body against a pathogen.

Two panel discussions on "Novel Ideas in Vaccine Development, rollout, and adopting emerging evidence in pandemic situations", and "Ethics of different development approaches, equity of participation in development & community engagement" are expected to follow, where many world-leading experts are expected to share their views. We have had good data so far.

AstraZeneca CEO Pascal Soriot made the promise during an online media interaction on Thursday, saying that a vaccine needed to be accessible to as many people as possible.

Its aim is to deliver 2 billion doses of effective, approved COVID-19 vaccines by the end of 2021.
