Putin: First COVID-19 vaccine registered in Russia

Russia was the first in the world to register a vaccine against coronavirus.

This is the first registered vaccine in the world. The President hopes that many vaccines against coronavirus will appear in the world over time.

The medicine will be produced by the Gamaleya center and Binnopharm, the Ministry of Health said.

Although I know that it works quite effectively, it forms a stable immunity, I repeat: it passed all the necessary tests.

Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

Putin said he expects a massive release of the Russian coronavirus vaccine in the near future. The president also said that his daughter was vaccinated against the coronavirus. According to him, after the vaccination, her temperature rose, but then immunity was formed.

The vaccination of health workers against coronavirus will begin in late August-September, announced the Minister of Health Tatiana Golikova. The Russian coronavirus vaccine will go into civilian circulation on January 1, 2021.
