All citizens of San Marino were vaccinated against coronavirus infection with the Sputnik V vaccine, reports “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, referring to the European media.
It is clarified that this dwarf state became the first country in the world where all residents were vaccinated.
The first batch of the Russian drug delivered to the country at the end of February. San Marino authorities were considering other options, including vaccines from India and China. The choice in favor of the drug “Sputnik V” was made due to the low price, ease of transportation and publication of the research results in the authoritative journal The Lancet.
As the newspaper notes, vaccination in San Marino caused a resonance in neighboring Italy. The country received hundreds of requests from Italian citizens wishing to be vaccinated with the Russian drug, but it was decided to vaccinate foreigners only after the local population was vaccinated.
