Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 13 /Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iran unofficially exports vaccines against snake and scorpion bites to the U.S., chairman of the Razi Institute for Serums and Vaccines of Iran, Hadi Famil Gedekchi said, ISNA reported.
"Because of the sanctions, we are not able to export some of the vaccines openly to the U.S., "Gedekchi explained.
The chairman added that since the U.S. is using these Iran-made vaccines, it indicates that Iran has reached a solid level of production of such vaccines.
Elsewhere, speaking about the polio vaccines, Gedekchi said Iran for the first time will be using injectable polio vaccines.
Polio vaccines are used throughout the world to combat poliomyelitis (or polio).
"The polio vaccines in Iran are made in accordance with World Health Organization's methods to fight similar diseases," he said. "In the future there are plans to mass produce the vaccine, and put it out on the market."
