Jeena & Co’s lifecare arm Jeena Criticare mandated to distribute COVISHIELD vaccines across India


Jeena Criticare, the pharmaceutical and critical healthcare logistics arm of Jeena & Co, has been appointed to distribute Serum Institute of India’s COVISHIELD vaccine to private hospitals across the country.

The impact of the pandemic remains a matter of primary concern, more so now, with the impending third wave, and so does the logistics hurdles. Having said, it is not a misnomer that the logistics sector is called as the frontline warriors of India Inc today. It is indeed the robust and seamless management of the entire logistics and pharma supply chain that ensured the effective distribution of COVID vaccines across the length and breadth of the country, enabling millions across the country to be able to combat this pandemic.

On July 23, the Central government informed in the Parliament that a total of 135 crore doses of COVID-19 vaccines will be made available in the country between August and December. So every arm of manufacturing and distribution will have to work as a well-oiled collaborated machinery.

Part of the 100+ year old legacy brand, Jeena Criticare is leading this defence from the front. With its global logistics support, Jeena has been a part of India’s export chain enabling healthcare to various countries and also for customers like the WHO.

Known for delivering with speed and effiecincy which is vital in the case of life-saving medicines during the present environment, Jeena Criticare has been able to get import clearance from 24 hrs to 5 hours flat, for COVID Care aid and other healthcare transportations from countries like South Korea, Germany, USA, Taiwan, China, Italy.

In the entire pandemic period from 2020 and till date, it has been instrumental in clearing and moving 3000 MT of covid care equipment that include Oxygen Concentrators, RT PCR kits, PPE kits, hospital beds, medicines & critical care drugs, masks, vaccines, ventilators, etc.

“This is a proud moment for Jeena Group, as we are actively a part of the nation building process. We are distributing the vaccine shipments which are otherwise time and temperature sensitive, in a record time! 70% of the vaccines are delivered pan India within 8 – 12 hours flat. It is important that the nation’s vaccine distribution system is empowered and made robust in these trying times, once again now, when we are staring at an impending third wave. We are happy to associate with Serum Institute of India, the dominant vaccine manufacturer in India and distribute their COVISHIELD vaccines to even the most remote parts of India,” says Cyrus Katgara, Partner, Jeena & Co.
