India will start sending vaccines to Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Myanmar and Seychelles from Wednesday.

The Government of India has received several requests for the supply of Indian manufactured vaccines from neighbouring and key partner countries.

In respect of Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Mauritius, we are awaiting their confirmation of necessary regulatory clearances, read a press release published by the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday.

The release added that in respect of Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Mauritius, India is awaiting their confirmation of necessary regulatory clearances.

Also, immunization program is being implemented in India, as in other countries, in a phased manner to cover the healthcare providers, frontline workers and the most vulnerable. 

Keeping in view the domestic requirements of the phased rollout, India will continue to supply Covid-19 vaccines to partner countries over the coming weeks and months in a phased manner. It will be ensured that domestic manufacturers will have adequate stocks to meet domestic requirements while supplying abroad.

Prior to the delivery of vaccines, a training program, covering administrative and operational aspects, is being conducted on January 19-20 for immunization managers, cold chain officers, communication officers and data managers of the recipient countries, both at national and provincial levels.

India has also provided training to several neighbouring countries to enhance and strengthen their clinical capabilities, under the Partnerships for Accelerating Clinical Trials (PACT) program.
