India is putting a brave fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and the frontline workers are giving their best to bring back normalcy in the Country. Vaccines played a vital role in protecting individuals in this tense situation. Corona vaccines are usually tested in three stages and will be approved based on these three-phase test data.

But Covaxin vaccine was granted emergency approval in India without releasing the results of the third phase of the study which lead to controversies. Bharat Biotech said the results of the third phase of their vaccine study would be released in July.
