"The vaccine produced at the Cantacuzino Institute is ten times cheaper than imported, so that Romania preferred to await the outcome of domestic
product, and not make use of the product abroad, said former Health Minister John Bazac. "....Ministry of Health has refused international offers of
vaccines, because the price demanded was 10 times the cost of romanian vaccine.
"We have received offers from the companies, in mid-summer, but booking site on the list for each dose of vaccine costs 2 euros. Output at the
Cantacuzino Institute costs 0.92 cents per dose of vaccine. And one dose of vaccine imported contains only half the dose of vaccine produced at the
Cantacuzino Institute. And costs 4.7 euros, plus € 2 booking. So what we bought with 5 million euros from Cantacuzino Institute, we have to pay 50
million'to foreign companies", said John Bazac.
Former Minister of Health said that Romania is lagging behind compared to other countries with vaccination, a similar situation exists in Italy.
"Neither in Italy did not start because missing vaccination permission to distribute the vaccine on the market. And in Italy there were 13 deaths,
including two in the last 24 hours'", said John Bazac.
Ministry of Health intended just to buy imported one million doses of vaccine, but later withdrew.
"When the assessment was to import, it was found that it will be need at least eight weeks to arrive on Romania. No longer point since the November
26, at the latest, the vaccine will be ready at Cantacuzino Institute", said interim Health Minister,Adrian Videanu. At this time, medical
authorities have supervised over 500 people in 24 counties and Bucharest.
