President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the ceremony marking the launch of the serial production of Türkiye's domestically produced Covid-19 vaccine TURKOVAC, via videoconference.
“On behalf of my country and my nation, I congratulate everyone who has taken part in the development and production of our vaccine. It is of utmost importance that the vaccine can now be produced in Türkiye. It is even more significant that this vaccine has been completely developed by our own scientists and researchers, and that its patent belongs to us," President Erdoğan said during his speech and added, “With the production of TURKOVAC, we will be pleased to share our vaccine with the entire humanity."
Meanwhile, TURKOVAC has been approved for emergency use on December 22. The emergency authorization application for the Turkovac has been submitted to the Turkish Medicines and Medical Devices Agency (TITCK) last month.
