Registration of the third COVID vaccine in Russia
The third coronavirus vaccine has been registered in Russia. The drug "KoviVak" was developed at the Center. Chumakov. In mid-March, the first 120 thousand doses will be put into civilian circulation.
This was announced by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin at a meeting on the circulation of vaccines for the prevention of COVID-19. He noted that today Russia is the only country that already has three vaccines for the prevention of coronavirus.
More than ten million doses of Sputnik V have already been produced, about 80 thousand doses of EpiVacCorona. Mishustin recalled that each region must be fully prepared to receive, store and distribute vaccines.
According to the director general of the Chumakov Center, Aydar Ishmukhametov, “KoviVac” is a classic whole-virion vaccine. Before the pandemic, 100% of vaccines were produced this way. After the vaccine is registered, quality control will take 28 days. After that, the drug will go into circulation. Production of at least half a million vaccines per month is projected.
In Russia since January 18 mass vaccination began from the coronavirus. Anyone can get vaccinated free of charge and voluntarily. In Moscow and St. Petersburg, mass vaccination began earlier.
