On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told his Canadian colleague or Prime minister Justin Trudeau that India will do its utmost to encourage deliveries of Canada’s sought-after COVID vaccines.
According to a Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) tweet, PM Trudeau made a telephone call to the Prime Minister. Trudeau said that if the world succeeded to overcome COVID-19, it would be important because of India’s enormous medicinal potential and PM Modi’s role in sharing this ability with the globe.
During the call, Prime Minister Trudeau told PM Modi of the specifications for India’s COVID-19 vaccine in Canada.
Prime Minister Modi told his Canadian counterpart that, just as he had already provided for several other nations, India will do its best possible to help Canada’s vaccination initiatives.

India is one of the world’s largest drug manufacturers and has already been contacted by a large number of countries to procure coronavirus vaccines.
Speaker of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Anurag Srivastava said last week that India had sent 56 lakh doses of coronavirus shots to a number of countries under concessions of help. On the other hand, 100 lakh doses were sent in industrial supplies.
A major coronavirus vaccination campaign has already been introduced by India in which two vaccines, Covishield and Covaxin, are being distributed across the nation to frontline health staff.
Though Oxford-Covishield AstraZeneca’s is manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, Bharat Biotech manufactures Covaxin.
