Mass production of Iran's virus vaccine 'in August'

The Iranian Razi Vaccine and Serum Research Institute will start the mass production of its own vaccine against COVID-19 in August, the institution's Deputy Head Mohammad Hassan Fallah said on Thursday.

Fallah still noted the mass production should start only after the second and the third phase of trials, which will take place in May, proved successful.

Earlier, Iranian officials said domestically-made vaccines had so far shown no side effects. Meanwhile, Tehran announced it would start producing the Russian Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology's vaccine, Sputnik V.
