In Montenegrin nursing homes began vaccination with the Russian drug against COVID-19 “Sputnik V”, the press service of the Institute of Public Health of Montenegro reported on Twitter.
It is noted that the first to be vaccinated was a 66-year-old resident of the Grabovac nursing home in Risan. The man urged his compatriots not to be afraid of vaccination and to follow his example. Then two doctors of this institution were vaccinated.
“The most important stage in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic has begun,” the message says, and it is specified that 79 patients and nursing home employees should be vaccinated in one day.
Let us remind you that the first batch of Sputnik V vaccine arrived in Montenegro from Serbia. In addition, the head of the country’s Ministry of Health, Elena Borovinich-Boyovich, said that a batch of Sputnik V is expected soon, which will come directly from the Russian Federation.
Earlier it was reported that the Ghanaian authorities registered “Sputnik V” in the country. Registration was carried out under an expedited procedure. Ghana became the 31st country in the world and the fifth state on the African continent to approve a Russian drug for coronavirus.
