Covishield priced at Rs 400 a dose for states, Rs 600 for private hospitals – ET HealthWorld


Pune-based Serum Institute of India on Wednesday announced Covishield’s cost per shot at Rs 600 for private hospitals and Rs 400 for state governments.

The announcement comes after the centre decentralised the vaccine purchase and procurement on Monday while allowing everyone above the age of 18 years to get vaccinated against the coronavirus (Covid-19) from May 1.

“For the next two months, we will address the limited capacity by scaling up the vaccine production. Going ahead, 50 percent 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,” said the vaccine manufacturer.

The company also urged all corporate and private individuals to access vaccines through the state-facilitated machinery and private health systems. “Post 4-5 months, the vaccines will be made available in retail and free trade,” SII added.
