PakVac is the name of Pakistan’s first locally produced COVID-19 vaccine. The Pakistan-made vaccine has passed internal quality assurance testing and will be available soon.
SAPM on Health, Dr. Faisal Sultan, took to Twitter to congratulate the National Institute of Health (NIH) on manufacturing the COVID-19 vaccine, which was originally developed by a Chinese company, CanSinoBIO.
With the support of Chinese scientists, the NIH produced the first batch of the single-dose PakVac vaccine, which contains 124,000 doses. The NIH will be the only manufacturer of the next batches of CanSinoBIO’s COVID-19 vaccine.
