A delegation made up of representatives from private vaccination clinics is going to India on Monday (4) to negotiate the purchase of 5 million doses of the Indian vaccine, against Covid-19, called Covaxin. The statement was made by the president of ABCVac (Brazilian Association of Vaccine Clinics), Geraldo Barbosa, in an interview with Globonews.
The delegation, which should only return to Brazil on the 10th, according to him, will inspect the vaccine producer to figure out what their supply capacity is.
According to the association's president, who claims to represent 70% of the country's private clinics, the negotiation will be with the Indian laboratory Bharat Biotech.
The selling of the vaccines depends on the authorization from Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency).
