India has till date supplied its COVID-19 vaccine to 15 countries. 

Moreover, another 25 nations are in queue for the Made-in-India vaccines. 

This was informed by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Saturday. 

“I think right now we have already supplied to about 15 countries. I would say there would be another about 25 countries which are at different stages in the pipeline. But what it has done is today it has put India on the map of the world,” External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said. 

The External Affairs Minister informed that three categories of countries are keen to acquire the Made-in-India vaccine. 

These three categories of countries are: poor, price sensitive nations and other countries which directly deal with pharmaceutical companies that make the antidote. 

Some countries have direct contracts with the Indian vaccine producing companies and have negotiated commercially, he said. 

The two COVID-19 vaccines produced in India are: Covaxin by Bharat Biotech and Covishield of Oxford, which is manufactured by Serum Institute of India.
