Mass vaccination against a new type of coronavirus may begin in Russia at the end of November, said Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Murashko.
“I want to say that in general we are planning a more massive supply of vaccines, this is already taking into account quality control. This will already be either the last days of November or December, since it is the production cycle and quality control that must be ensured in full, ”said the Russian politician, speaking at the congress of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
In the summer, Russia registered the world's first coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V. In October, it became known about the registration of another vaccine, which was developed by employees of the Novosibirsk center "Vector".
Earlier on Thursday, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, said that the third Russian vaccine against coronavirus could be registered in a month, Infox.ru pointed out.
