General Director of the Institute Kunsulu Zakarya reported about the plans for the further development of the Research Institute of Biological Safety Problems.

The plant will produce immunobiological drugs in accordance with the international standard of good manufacturing practice (GMP), including vaccines against coronavirus infection, vaccines against influenza, tuberculosis, brucellosis, lumpy skin disease and other infectious diseases.

It is planned to produce between 30 and 60 million doses of biopharmaceuticals annually. The total cost of the project is 15.6 billion tenge.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev was told that on September 16, industrial bottling was launched in the amount of 100 thousand doses.

Among the CIS countries, only Kazakhstan and Russia have established the production of vaccines against Covid-19.

In a conversation with the plant’s employees, the President of Kazakhstan, noting the importance of the project, expressed confidence that the domestic vaccine would make a significant contribution to the fight against coronavirus and improve public health.

– Congratulations to all of you, this is really a great achievement. This is a very necessary production for our country. The main work is done. We will continue to release next year. We will send this vaccine as humanitarian aid to Afghanistan and other Muslim countries. Our vaccine is gaining recognition in the world, for which I thank you. This is a very complex manufacturing process. It takes three to four years to launch such an enterprise abroad, and we were able to get the work started in 9 months. The state highly appreciates your work, the Head of State noted.
