Sinopharm approved countries: where was the vaccine authorized?

The Chinese Sinopharm vaccine has been one of the leaders since the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccine race. To date, it has been approved in more than 50 countries and is distributed worldwide. He has also come to the aid of several low- and middle-income countries through the COVAX agreement.

About Sinopharm

Sinopharm is produced by Beijing Bio-Institute of Biological Products Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China National Biotec Group (CNBG).

Sinopharm relies on an older but tested inactivated virus technology that involves removing dead coronaviruses and injecting them into the body. In essence, this process causes the body to produce antibodies against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

After vaccination, the immune system will be able to respond to infection with live coronaviruses. Antibodies can stick and prevent the virus from entering the body’s cells.

According to available data, Sinopharm vaccine has 100% protection against moderate and severe forms of Covid-19. Its overall efficiency is 86 percent. Side effects associated with vaccination of volunteers include injection site pain, headache, fever, or fatigue.

The WHO recommends that the vaccine be given to adults 18 years of age and older on a two-dose schedule every three to four weeks. The effectiveness of the vaccine against symptomatic and hospitalized disease was estimated at 79% for all age groups combined.

The EUL listing procedure allows the assessment of the suitability of new products for health during public health emergencies. The aim is to make medicines, vaccines and diagnostic tools available to deal with emergencies as soon as possible, while adhering to strict safety, efficacy and quality criteria. The assessment weighs the threat posed by the emergency as well as the benefits that the use of the product may bring, compared to any potential risks.

For COVID-19 vaccines, the UN Office of Health has set the minimum efficacy threshold at 50% in its assessment of COVID-19 vaccines. At present, WHO has also approved:
