The Coranavirus infection happens to be one of the major health concerns worldwide. It has already wreaked much havoc, infecting more than 14 million people and causing over 6 lakh deaths so far. According to stats India is now the third most badly hit country in the world in terms of the coronavirus pandemic. Like many other countries of the world India too is trying to come up with a fitting vaccine for this viral infection that started last year in China’s Wuhan City and rapidly spread all across the world causing a global pandemic.


India is one of the biggest manufacturers of generic vaccines and medicines. Several Indian pharmaceutical companies are involved in developing vaccines for several diseases such as measles, meningitis, polio, rotavirus etc.


The Indian pharmaceutical companies engaged in developing a COVID-19 vaccine are listed below:

AstraZeneca; Serum Institute of India: The vaccine by AstraZeneca is in its Phase III trial stage at the clinical level. Human trials are likely to start in India in the month of August and the company hopes that their vaccine would be available to people by the end of the year.
