Iranian Covid-19 vaccine "Noora", produced by Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences was unveiled on Sunday.
The unveiling ceremony was held in the presence of the Chief-Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami and the Iranian Health Minister Saeed Namaki.
The “Noora” vaccine has reached the stage of the clinical trial after 16 months of research work by Iranian scientists.
The first dose of Noora vaccine was injected into the head of Baqiyatallah Hospital Hossein Samadinia.
Iran is the sixth country in the world and the first country in West Asia to gain the ability to produce the Coronavirus vaccine. Presently, there are several companies and centers researching and developing domestic vaccines. Due to the fact that two of the domestic vaccines have successfully passed the clinical, safety, and efficacy trials, voluntarily receiving injections of them has started.
