Why Hyderabad is the world’s vaccine capital
HYDERABAD: As international vaccine companies and academic institutions race the clock to deliver a safe Covid-19 vaccine, all eyes are on India that makes 60% of the world’s vaccines. And within India, if there is one destination that all of them are making a beeline for it is Hyderabad. The city has the capacity to churn out well over a third of the global vaccine supply.
Be it India’s first indigenous Covid-19 vaccine candidate Covaxin or Russia’s Sputnik V, Johnson & Johnson’s Ad26.Cov2.S, FluGen’s CoroFlu or even Sanofi’s under development vaccine candidates, all have a Hyderabad connect.
Whether a successful Covid-19 vaccine is developed in Hyderabad or not, a vaccine developed anywhere in the world will be churned out of Hyderabad, says Dr Varaprasad Reddy, founder & chairman, Shantha Biotechnics Ltd.
“All Hyderabad vaccine companies are robust in manufacturing technology and have the capacity to manufacture millions of doses with good standards,” says Reddy, who is awaiting Sanofi’s own vaccine candidate in the first half of 2021, a chunk of which is expected to be manufactured in Hyderabad. Sanofi had acquired Shantha Biotechnics in 2009.
Hyderabad will be an integral part of the Covid-19 solution just by the dint of the sheer vaccine manufacturing capacity it houses, feels Mahima Datla, managing director, Biological E Limited, which has a tieup with Baylor College of Medicine, Texas, to develop its own vaccine candidate and a tech collaboration to manufacture Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine here.
Biological E公司董事总经理Mahima Datla认为，仅凭海得拉巴拥有的疫苗生产能力，海得拉巴就将成为新冠解决方案的一个组成部分。该公司与德克萨斯州贝勒医学院合作开发自己的候选疫苗，并在本土与强生公司合作生产疫苗。
‘Hyderabad well poised to offer affordable Covid solution’
IIL deputy MD Prasanna Deshpande feels that as affordability will be the key in battling Covid-19 given its global spread, no one is better poised to offer this than Hyderabad given its scale of operations. The Telangana go nment too is gung-ho about Hyderabad’s role in the Covid-19 battle given. “Being the vaccine capital of the world, we are fully committed to playing an enabling role in global vaccination efforts against Covid-19 and proactively support our companies to quickly ramp up production to serve the world,” said Jayesh Ranjan, principal secretary, industries & ITE&C, Telangana.
印度免疫公司副总Prasanna Deshpande认为，鉴于疫情在全球传播，负担能力将是抗击疫情的关键，鉴于其业务规模，没有比海得拉巴更有能力提供这种服务的地方。泰伦加纳政府也对海得拉巴在抗疫战斗中所扮演的角色非常支持。泰伦加纳的Industries & ITE&C首席秘书Jayesh Ranjan说:“作为世界疫苗之都，我们全力致力于在全球抗击新冠肺炎的疫苗接种工作中发挥积极作用，并积极支持企业迅速提高产量，以服务世界。”

I hope by Diwali our Vaccination program will start
Surrender das Moti
God willing my friend
that is good news. Hyderabad is making India proud. ambient city. we wool forward to the city making headlines in the near future.
Is this a paid news? I was under the impression that in India, SII is the biggest manufacturer of vaccines.
Indian idiots can only replicate and copy ..they cannot make anything on their own.. morons...
You r one among them
What about Pune ??? Forgotten Serum Institute of India ???
So Fauci is right in saying that US will have to wait till mid 21 for covid vaccine.
hope for the best to happen by hyderabad to deliver the medicine
Companies are looking forward to mint money by releasing vaccine
70% of raw materials in form of APIs come from China...what are we dancing for? did Doland command you to go to Balconies and bhajaothalli?
Serum Inst of India at Pune is worlds largest vaccine manufacturing facility-so the headline is quiet mis guiding.
Hope they havent hired ppl with fake degrees
I am bot sure if Hyderbad is the worlds vaccine capital but india definitely makes 60% of the worlds vaccines. This has been like this for a long time so the credit goes to the previous go nments
Vaccines for a fake ficitous nonexistential disease called covid...??
Good to know that India is manufacturing 60% of the vaccines of the World.
Secular State of Maharashtra has More than 2-Lakhs ACTIVE Cases As Against All Other States Less than 1-Lakh??
Covid virus mutates very fast , so by time you took vaccine , the virus must have already mutated to various other genetic forms. So its impossible to have a vaccine which can kill all the mutated forms of covid..instead one should focus on proper medication and eat better food to develop immune system.
India steal, copy and pirate on R&D results of others to boast itself world largest, best, all rubbish. Shameless
True, India has Hyderabad as the vaccine capital of the country. But India has always been the Capital of so many,like India is the Capital of Diabetes, total drugs across the world is smuggled into India with Delhi as its Crime Capital, too.
