MUSCAT: Oman’s health minister His Excellency Dr. Ahmed Al Saidi met Indian Ambassador Munu Mahawar to discuss the possibility of considering Oman to be one of the countries to receive the COVID-19 vaccines from India after evaluating its efficiency and safety in clinical trials.
In a statement, the Ministry of Health said both the officials met on Monday and discussed coronavirus vaccinations expected to be released by Indian companies.
It is worth noting that Indian pharmaceutical companies are edging closer to creating a vaccine for Covid-19. Serum, an Indian-based company that has made billions of doses of vaccines in the past, is hoping to roll out a vaccine soon.
“The meeting also discussed vaccinations expected to be released by manufacturers within the upcoming period including Indian companies that are currently working on producing COVID-19 vaccination. The health minister discussed with His Excellency the Ambassador the possibility of considering the Sultanate to be one of the countries to receive the vaccine after evaluating its efficiency and safety in clinical trials,” MOH said in a statement.
