Iranian elites living abroad are participating in the development of coronavirus vaccine in Iran through a platform created by National Elite Foundation, Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari said.

 

Sattari told Mehr News Agency that Iran is working on the production of six different types of vaccine, one of which is anti-coronavirus.

He also said the Iranian coronavirus vaccine is being tested on animals but not humans.

On July 9, Chancellor of Iran University of Medical Sciences Dr. Jalil Kuhpayehzadeh said the initial laboratory phase of the coronavirus vaccine was performed and its human test and injection will be performed by September 9. If these steps are successful, the vaccine will be mass-produced, he added.

Previously, Health Minister Saeed Namaki announced that Iran has taken good steps in making the COVID-19 vaccine, mentioning that the animal model of this vaccine has been tested by our scientists successfully.
