As the Islamic Republic moves ahead with its plans to develop a number of domestic vaccines, officials say 13 million Iranians will be inoculated against COVID-19 by July 22.
The government says it is determined to launch the production line of domestic jabs, but stresses that vaccines must be imported from other countries to save people’s lives.Knowledge-based companies and especially those active in nano-technology are playing a major role in helping the vaccine production companies.
Reports say the Co-Pasteur and the Coviran Barekat vaccine will be ready for use in June. Iran has been battling one of the deadliest coronavirus outbreaks in the world since February 2020 while the country was struggling against US illegal sanctions as well.
