Forty-six million doses should be available by December, Doria reports. The expansion of the vaccines will be possible courtesy of technology transfer from the pharmaceutical firm to the institute, which will then start producing the vaccine.

CoronaVac is currently in stage three of human testing. The tests, under the responsibility of the Butantan Institute, started being conducted in Brazil in July and will be applied on 9 thousand volunteers. The testing was distributed across 12 research centers in São Paulo, Brasília, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, and Paraná.
