Vaccine manufacturer Pfizer has told the Indian government that it has no concerns about the safety of Covid-19 Vaccine. In fact, the Indian government has insisted that the vaccine be tested locally. The government made it easier to sell foreign vaccines approved in Western countries and Japan in India in mid-April. However, after getting emergency approval, companies must conduct a local clinical trial within 30 days.
It is worth mentioning that till this time, companies had to do trial before approval. Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna Vaccine have been invited to come and sell the vaccine in India, but so far no one has applied for approval. However, Pfizer has said that it is negotiating with the government afresh. In fact, in February, Pfizer had applied for the vaccine, but withdrew it due to the local trial rules.
