The Ministry of Health says its Covid-19 vaccine strategy is centred on achieving sufficient levels of immunity in the population, with a particular focus on Māori, Pacific peoples and at-risk groups in the community.

It did not give details about the size of the investment in SII nor how many vaccines Beximco might receive.

Maryland-based biotech Novavax has already signed partnership or vaccine delivery agreements with Britain, Japan and India.

According to Dr Rao, the blood samples collected from the volunteers who had received the vaccine were to determine the effectiveness of the vaccine in terms of the level of antibodies developed.

"Several more vaccines are going through registration".

All vaccines remain in clinical trials and must first be deemed safe by the developers and then approved by Health Canada for use here before any Canadians will be vaccinated.

The vaccine will be mandatory for members of Russia's armed forces, according to Vladimir Putin's defence minister Sergei Shoigu, but offered to teachers and doctors on an entirely voluntary basis. In a statement on Friday, August 28, said it would "facilitate to secure the needs of the Government of Bangladesh (GOB) by offering the opportunity to reserve desired quantities for priority supply at prices to be agreed between the GOB (government) and SII". Beximco will also secure additional doses to be distributed to the private pay market in Bangladesh. Mikhail Murashko also said on Monday that the third-stage trials were ready to start.

The letter suggested that an approval before Phase 3 completion "could significantly undermine COVID-19 vaccination efforts and seriously erode confidence in all vaccines in the current atmosphere of vaccine hesitancy".

Novavax said it expects to finalize an advance purchase agreement to supply doses of the vaccine, beginning as early as the second quarter of next year.
