Doctors said who would receive the coronavirus vaccine first. The data was shared by Victor Zuev, Head of the Latent Infections Microbiology Department of the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Gamaleya.

As the National News Service, people at risk will be the first to receive the vaccine. In addition to this category of citizens, the need for vaccination will be determined by the presence of antibodies to coronavirus in the body.
