American Tennis legend Jimmy Connors on Friday urged the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve India's indigenously developed COVID-19 vaccine Covaxin for the country’s vaccination program. The US is yet to green light the Indian vaccine despite it being granted emergency-use listing (EUL) by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Eight-time Grand Slam Champion took to Twitter to raise the question as to why Covaxin has not been given a chance in the United States, although several other vaccines have been made available.
