An English daily revealed that each dose can be available at just Rs. 250. The report further states that two doses of Corbevax may even be priced below Rs 400. However, it is not yet clear whether it will be sold to governments and private hospitals at the same price.
If the company sells the two doses for Rs 500 (sold to governments and private for the same price) it will be the cheapest vaccine in the country. While SII’s is fixed at Rs 300 a dose for state governments and Rs 600 a dose for private hospitals, Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin is selling for Rs 400 and Rs 1,200.
