Correspondent of the Moscow bureau of the American newspaper The New York Times, Andrew Kramer, commented positively on the vaccination with the Russian vaccine against the Sputnik V coronavirus, reports TASS.
According to Kramer, he was convinced of the safety of the vaccine, which after completion of the tests showed “good results” and high efficacy.
It is reported that the first dose of the drug was administered to him at the Moscow polyclinic number 5 on Monday.
After the injection of the drug, the doctors asked him to spend half an hour in the corridor of the clinic in case of anaphylactic shock, “which, fortunately, never came.”
The journalist also noted that he was able to avoid some side effects such as headaches and fever.
Earlier, the Kremlin said that global pharmaceutical giants are trying to discredit the Russian vaccine against COVID-19. According to Dmitry Peskov, competition in this case is already being politicized, using dirty methods to discredit.
