China’s corona vaccine is almost ready, but the Netherlands is not...

China expects to launch the first effective corona vaccine on the market within weeks. And probably two more will follow this year. But the Netherlands is not interested, even if the Chinese vaccines seem safe according to experts.

While all of Europe yearns for a cure for corona, a laboratory in the Chinese capital Beijing is putting the finishing touches on the first working vaccine. Where Western drug giants such as AstraZeneca and Pfizer aim for the first quarter of 2021 – ‘at the earliest’ -, a spokesman for the Chinese state pharmaceutical company Sinopharm says her company expects to bring the vaccine to the market within a few weeks. : ,, We aim for November. ”

The mega company is not alone: ​​Chinese vaccine makers CanSino and SinoVac also say they will come up with an effective vaccine before the end of the year. The pharmaceutical companies in question are currently undergoing the final research phase, where the vaccines are tested on tens of thousands of test subjects.

One billion vaccines every year

If everything goes according to plan, more than 600 million corona vaccines will be on the shelf by the end of this year. Starting next year, the production capacity will be increased to several billion doses per year. Vaccines, according to China, are also explicitly intended for the rest of the world.


And let there be no misunderstanding: the Chinese do not do shoddy work. Anke Huckriede, professor of vaccinology at the University of Groningen, is following Chinese developments with interest: “As far as we can now judge, the quality of the Chinese vaccines is not inferior to the Western vaccine projects. Which also speaks in their favor: all information from the first test phases has been shared internationally. This was not the case with the Russian corona vaccine Sputnik this summer, for example. ”

However, the chance that we will also receive a Chinese-made corona vaccine in the Netherlands in the short term is extremely small. The Netherlands, together with the other member states of the European Union, has concluded vaccine deals with six pharmaceutical companies in Europe and the United States. According to insiders, a seventh deal is in the works with the American pharmaceutical company Novavax. China appears to be offside.

The chance that we will also receive a Chinese-made corona vaccine in the Netherlands in the short term is very small. According to a spokesperson for Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health), this is not surprising. Read more below the photo.
