Hungary approves CanSino Chinese jab – EURACTIV.comA representative of the private pharmaceutical company AGP Limited has said Pakistan soon start manufacturing the vaccine itself via ‘technology transfer’ from China.

Before that, China’s CanSino Biologics coronavirus vaccine would be brought in bulk in Pakistan. Next month, it would be packed at a filling plant at NIH (National Institute of Health).

 

 

 

On Monday, an AGP official told the media that the company would begin receiving China’s CanSino Biologics COVID-19 vaccine this week for commercial sale.

“It will reduce the price of the vaccine by up to 30% (around ₨. 3,000),” technical Adviser to AGM Pharma Dr. Hassan Abbas Zaheer said, referring to the vaccine being packed at the NIH in the future.

“At a later stage, it will be manufactured in Pakistan via the transfer of technology. This has been made possible because the clinical trial of Cansino was held in Pakistan.”

Zaheer said though Pakistan was a vaccine insecure country currently, “soon it would become a secure country as vaccine production would begin here and dependence on other nations would end.”

“The vaccine will be manufactured under a public-private partnership project,” Zaheer added.

“Currently, India’s vaccine manufacturing industry is worth $5 billion. Pakistan can also start producing several vaccines including COVID-19.”
