COVID-19: Russia has begun to roll out vaccination in Sputnik V clinics

Sky, 06 Dec 2020

Seventy COVID-19 clinics opened in the Russian capital on Saturday, three days after President Vladimir Putin ordered a 'large-scale' immunisation programme that he claims will begin with two million doses being made available this week.

The Sputnik V has not yet completed Phase 3 of its trials, unlike the vaccine produced by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, sparking widespread criticism it is not safe for use.
