India is one of the worlds top 10 buyers of Covid vaccines. It still has nowhere near enough – CNN
Before the pandemic, India typically produced more than 60% of all vaccines sold globally. It is home to the Serum Institute of India (SII), the world’s largest vaccine maker, and its vast manufacturing capability is why the country signed on as a major player in COVAX, the global vaccine-sharing initiative that provides discounted or free doses for lower-income countries. Under the initial agreement announced last year, SII would manufacture up to 200 million doses for up to 92 countries.
