Russia wants to start vaccination against corona in October


According to the minister, Mikhail Murashko, doctors and teachers are the first to be vaccinated. Earlier this week, it was announced that the first potential Russian corona vaccine, allegedly developed by a state investigative body, will receive regulatory approval in August. It would then be administered to health professionals soon afterwards.

“Russia will be the first”

The director of the government fund behind the Russian vaccination study called it a “Sputnik moment.” He said to CNN: The Americans were amazed to hear the Sputnik satellite bleep. The same goes for this vaccine: Russia will be the first. ”

CNN reported earlier this week that the vaccine was developed by the Gamaleya Institute in Moscow. It is unclear how safe and effective the vaccine is. However, more than twenty countries have already expressed interest in the vaccine, CNN reports based on Russian sources.
