Chandigarh, June 6 (MNN) Haryana has received a proposal for the supply of 60 million Sputnik vaccine doses from Pharma Regulatory Services Limited in Malta, which was under state government’s consideration.

“Haryana has received offer from Pharma Regulatory Services Ltd. of Malta for supply of 60 million doses of Sputnik vaccine. We are considering the offer and will put up before the Cabinet for final approval,” state Health Minister Anil Vij tweeted.

The state government had said on Saturday that Haryana had issued a global tender through the Haryana Medical Services Corporation on May 26 to augment the supply of COVID-19 vaccines received from the Indian government of India and complete immunisation of 18-44 age group.

Though no bids were received in the tender till the last date of June 4, Pharma Regulatory Services Ltd — an international pharma company with headquarters in Malta – had expressed interest to provide up to 60 million doses of Sputnik-V vaccine manufactured in Russia.

Sputnik-V is one of three vaccines currently approved by the Drugs Controller General of India.

The firm has offered each vaccine dose for around Rs 1,120 and given a time limit of 30 days to supply the first batch of 50,00,00 doses and 10 lakh doses thereafter every 20 days, the government said.

Additional Chief Secretary Health Rajiv Arora said that though the offer had come after the tender’s due date, it was under careful scrutiny to see whether the firm was in compliance with tender documents and could ensure best vaccine availability to the state.
