Dozens of vaccination centers have been opened in Russia to prevent corona virus infection that began on Saturday. Thousands of physicians, teachers and others have also signed on for this vaccination, including thousands in high-risk groups.
President Vladimir Putin ordered three days ago to launch a massive Covid-19 vaccination campaign. Vaccination has started after this. However, the necessary advanced study of this vaccine manufactured in Russia is yet to be done as per the established scientific protocol which is necessary to ensure its effectiveness and safety.
The Russian leader said on Wednesday that 20 million doses of Sputnik V would be available in the next few days. For this vaccination, 70 centers have been opened on Saturday in Moscow alone. Doctors, teachers and local body employees have been asked to schedule their time for this. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that within a few hours five thousand people have signed up for it.
