Covishield Vaccine Price: The Serum Institute of India has said that it will provide Covishield to private hospitals for Rs 600 per dose. It will charge the state governments Rs 400 for per dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

SII in a statement said that it welcomes the government’s decision to accelerate the country’s vaccination drive. It said that allowing the states, private hospitals and vaccination centres to procure vaccine directly from the manufacturers will scale up the programme. For the next two months, the SII said it will address the limited capacity by scaling up the production. 

“50% of our capacities will be served to the Government of India’s vaccination programme and the remaining 50% of the capacity will be for the state governments and private hospitals,” the SII said.

According to the government data, Covishield comprises over 90 per cent of the 12.76 crore COVID-19 vaccines administered across the country so far.
