Head of Iran's Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order, Mohammad Mokhber, revealed on Tuesday that the preliminary testing of a COVID-19 vaccine developed in the country showed the shot hasn't caused any side effects among 14 individuals who received it.

Mokhber said the results have been "better than expected," adding that the production should reach between two and three million doses within the next two months. According to IRNA, up to 14 million vaccine doses are expected to be manufactured by May.

The jab will also be more affordable compared to existing vaccines, Mokhber concluded.
