The Indian government is still negotiating with Pfizer over vaccine supplies to India. The final approval for vaccine supply is awaited.
Sources have confirmed that the Indian government is now looking for new vaccine suppliers to supply in large quantities. Pfizer has reportedly told that it can supply 50 million doses by October this year. However, the negotiations are still on as the company demands indemnity from any legal action in India. The officials have said that the issue is still not resolved and will be cleared in some time.
