Iran among top 10 countries in vaccine production

Hamid Kahram told reporters on Sunday that Turkey, Malaysia and Pakistan are among the countries in the Middle East, which have gained remarkable achievements but they have managed to produce livestock vaccines alone and failed to produce human and poultry vaccines.

Noting that countries near Iran are unable to produce human vaccines, Kahram added that the 92-year-old Razi Institute can serve as a model for other countries in producing human and poultry vaccines.

Today, the institute has turned into a science generating body, which can meet the healthcare needs such as human, livestock and poultry health, he said.

Currently, the institute produces 50 percent of needed vaccines for poultry, he said.
