Underlining that the project for a local vaccine began in 2015, Koca said all processes including antigen generation had been carried out completely under domestic conditions.

He added that the necessary quality controls of the vaccine had been conducted and the vaccine was approved.

"The process focusing on local vaccine production, which we started as part of the localization policy, will continue with good news," Koca said.
