India’s free shipments of the vaccine began with Maldives, Bhutan, Bangladesh & Nepal & will extend to others.” It added, “India’s a true friend using its pharma to help the global community,” it further added.

India sends vaccines to all neighbouring countries except Pakistan

The Modi government has decided to send the vaccines to almost all neighbouring countries, with one notable exception of Pakistan. While the first shipment of Indian vaccines had landed Bhutan and after that in the Maldives, vaccines have reached other nearby nations like Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, and the country plans to send vaccines to Afghanistan and Sri Lanka soon.

Other than these neighbouring countries, India has also sent vaccines to Seychelles and Mauritius as grant supplies. Apart from these grants by India, the commercial export of vaccines is also starting from yesterday. Serum Institute is shipping the Covishield vaccine to Brazil and Morocco today. South Africa and Saudi Arabia will also get shipments for the same in the coming days
