SinoVac currently has clinical trials in Brazil, Turkey and Indonesia.

The company has already injected thousands of people with the vaccine in China, including 90% of its staff and its CEO, under emergency use approval from the Chinese government.

The vaccine has passed stage 1 and stage 2 clinical trials, but has not finished stage 3 trials, which are the global standard.

The company says it will prioritize distribution of the vaccine to countries hosting its human trials.
