The anti-Covid vaccine "Sputnik V" will be produced in Algeria by the public group Saidal, in partnership with the Russian laboratory, by next September, announced Wednesday in Algiers, the Minister of Pharmaceutical Industry, Lotfi Benbahmed.

"After having met many challenges related to Covid-19: drugs, masks, oxygen, tests, etc., we must now meet the challenge of the vaccine. We will be at the rendezvous at the beginning of next school year. In September, we will be ready to produce an Algerian vaccine," said Benbahmed on Channel III of the Algerian Radio. This project will be carried out at the Saidal plant in Constantine, thanks to the technology transfer provided by the Russians, through a digital platform accessible to Algerian experts, and which gathers all the data necessary for the manufacture of "Sputnik V", in three phases: cell culture, aseptic distribution and biological control. "Three committees including experts from Saidal, academics, research centers, the Pasteur Institute and executives of the Ministry, are currently working hard on the transfer of technology offered by the Russian fund, "said the Minister. In addition to the Russian partner, the Saidal group will be accompanied by an Indian laboratory leader in the manufacture of this type of product and has already produced vaccines against Covid in other countries. Recalling that this project is a way for Algeria to achieve "health sovereignty", Mr. Benbahmed stressed that locally produced vaccines will also be intended for various countries in the region. "Algeria will be integrated into the globalization of vaccine production, it will have its full share and responsibility in the vaccination of African populations," he said.
