TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – None of the Iranian volunteers who have been injected with a homegrown vaccine for the coronavirus in clinical trials has shown any symptoms, an official said.

The chairman of the Headquarters for Executing the Order of Imam Khomeini said on Tuesday that all of the 14 people given an injection of the Iranian vaccine are in good health conditions and the vaccine has not had any side effects.

Mohammad Mokhber said the vaccine will yield results more than expectations, noting that the third group of the final 56 volunteers are going to receive the shot today.

He also said the capacity of coronavirus vaccine production in Iran will hit 12 to 14 million doses within the next four months.

Last week, President Hassan Rouhani said his administration is doing its utmost to carry out the first stage of a countrywide vaccination program against the coronavirus pandemic in Iran before March 20.

The president also said the vaccination programs will continue in the next Iranian year with a coronavirus vaccine developed jointly by Iran and a foreign country and another homegrown vaccine produced by the local experts.
