Government yesterday said that Serum Institute of India, SII has not contracted all its production of COVID vaccine to the Centre till 25th May. Union Health Ministry said, there have been some media reports suggesting that SII has contracted all its production to the Center till 25th May this year. 

The Ministry said, these media reports are based on incorrect facts and are without any basis. It said, state governments are free to procure COVID vaccine doses from the vaccine manufacturers as per the Liberalised Pricing and Accelerated National COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy. 

In order to expand and liberalise the countrywide vaccination drive, the Centre had announced the Liberalised Pricing and Accelerated National COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy which will come into effect from 1st May.
A key feature of this Vaccination Strategy is that the Vaccine manufacturers would supply 50 per cent of their monthly Central Drugs Laboratory, CDL released doses to the Center and will be free to supply remaining 50 per cent doses to state governments. 

The Ministry said, it is very clear that every month out of the total CDL cleared doses available with any vaccine manufacturer, 50 per cent doses will be available for other than Government of India channels.
