Ministry of Science & Technology (MoST) initially said that a vaccine for COVID-19 is unlikely for public use before 2021. The line was later deleted from the statement as it was in contrast to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) which claims that it has fast-tracked trials of a vaccine candidate Covaxin, which to be ready by August 15. 

Bharat Biotech's Covaxin and ZyCov-D of Zydus Pharma have been approved for human clinical trials. The Government on Sunday said that the country is entering the human trial stage which "marks the beginning of the end" of the pandemic. 

Given that the coronavirus is spreading in the country at an exponential rate, people are waiting for the vaccine to be available soon.
