It joins the Covaxin vaccines from the Indian Bharat Biontech, Covovax produced by the Serum Institute of India under license from the American Novovax; Pfizer / BioNTech; Modern; AstraZeneca (WHO counts two AZ vaccines, one of them manufactured in India), Johnson & Johnson, Sinopharm and Sinovac.

All of these drugs seek to make the body’s immune system attack the coronavirus, but in different ways.

Novavax’s so-called protein subunit technology has been tested and used for decades to combat diseases such as hepatitis B and whooping cough. It also has the advantage of not requiring storage at very low temperatures, like other immunizers.

The Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, which have dominated the global response to COVID-19, use pioneering messenger RNA technology.
