The Islamic Republic of Iran is the world's sixth Islamic country and the first in western Asia to manufacture a COVID-19 vaccine indigenously.
Local institutions are now researching to produce local COVID-19 vaccines. Given the success of clinical trial results and safety, and the efficacy of two types of local vaccines, their widespread and voluntary use has begun in the country.
