Bharat Biotech announced the commencement of Phase-3 trials of Covaxin on November 16. The Phase-3 trials will involve 26,000 participants across India, conducted in partnership with ICMR.

It is the biggest clinical trial conducted for a coronavirus vaccine in India.

Trial volunteers will take two intramuscular injections approximately 28 days apart. Participants will be randomly assigned to get Covaxin or placebo. The trial is double-blinded, where the investigators, the participants, and the company will not be aware of who is assigned to which group.

Covaxin has been evaluated in 1,000 subjects in Phase-1 and Phase-2 clinical trials, promising safety and immunogenicity data. Volunteers who wish to join in this trial should be adults over 18 years of age.
