Moscow’s task force has announced that the Sputnik V Covid-19 shot has been mass distributed via 70 clinics.
The vaccine, which is produced in Russia, will be initially made available to people who run the highest risk of exposure to the virus such as medical workers, social workers and doctors.
A cap of 60 years old has been placed on the vaccinations, as well as this, pregnant women, people with underlying conditions and anyone who had a respiratory illness for the past two weeks will be barred from receiving the vaccination.
This vaccination has been backed by the Russian Direct Investment Fund while another vaccination has been developed by Siberia’s Vector Institute.
Final trials for both vaccines have yet to be completed which has raised concerns from scientists.
