Covid-19 Vaccine: Even though the corona vaccine is still waiting for the country’s legs, it has now been included in the election promises. The Bharatiya Janata Party has made a big announcement in the Bihar election, saying that the vaccine of coronavirus will be given to every Biharite free. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said this while releasing the party’s election manifesto. Let us know that some companies in India are also engaged in testing of coronavirus and soon it is expected to get permission from the Indian Council of Medical Research.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that as soon as the ICMR approves any vaccine of Corona and starts its production on a large scale, everyone will get free vaccination in Bihar. He said that four types of vaccines of Coronavirus have been made in the country. However, after this promise, other states have started to surround the BJP and demanded more, free vaccination should be done in their state too.

Covid-19 vaccine trial is going on in the country. These include ICMR-India Biotech’s Covaxin, Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covishield and Serum Institute of India (SII) vaccine. Apart from this, Cadila Healthcare is also developing its vaccine ZyCov-D. After clinical trials, its effects will be studied and assessed. Only after this, large scale production of the vaccine will be started in the country. In India, 3 vaccine trials are being conducted on humans.
The government will decide the price
The Covid vaccine being tested in India will be approved by the ICMR and will be approved by the Drug Controller General of India. The government will decide the price of the vaccine together with the company that makes the vaccine. Let us know that the Union Health Minister, Dr. Harsh Vardhan has also said that by July 2021 on priority, 25-30 crore Indians are ready to be vaccinated. It will be clear about the price of the vaccine only when the trial is completed and approval will be received from ICMR.
Even against the promise
The opposition has started to question this promise of BJP. Other parties including Samajwadi Party, Congress, CPI have targeted the BJP. Akhilesh said that why BJP is not making such promises for UP and other states, while Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that BJP is playing with the people of Bihar. At the same time, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said that the corona vaccine is for the whole country, not the BJP.
