An article by a media outlet falsely claimed that a professor from Harvard University praised India for its vaccination testing.
According to the Harvard website, Dr. Jessie Bump is a lecturer on Global Health Policy in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Bump's work examines the evolution of ideas and institutions that facilitate better societal health performance. He has not praised India for its efforts in vaccinations in the last two centuries. There are no credible or official records of this statement. His most recent peer-reviewed publication was in 2020, titled 'Quantifying the Valuation of Animal Welfare among Americans,' in the Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics.
So far, the Serum Institute of India (SII) is the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world. According to the SII website, they have produced over 1.5 billion vaccine doses for COVID-19, Polio, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Hib, BCG, r-Hepatitis B, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. Reuters reported in May 2021 that India is said to triple the COVID-19 vaccine production in 2021-22.
