Serum Institute of India's (SII) Chief Executive Officer Adar Poonawalla has said its Covovax vaccine will get approval as a booster against COVID in the next 10 to 15 days. Asked about states and districts not getting the Covishield vaccine, he said there is ample stock with the government for supply. "Covovax will be approved as a booster in the next 10-15 days. It is actually the best booster because it works very well against Omicron, more than Covishield," Poonawalla said.
