Estonia is ready to purchase the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine if it is approved for use in the EU countries, President Kersti Kaljulaid said.

The Estonian government adheres to the position that if Sputnik V or Sinovac (China) are registered in Europe and their use is recognized as safe, then we will give these vaccines to our people in a completely apolitical way,”Kaljulaid quotes TASS.

Earlier, the Prime Minister of Estonia Kaya Kallas said that the Cabinet will consider the possibility of using "Sputnik V" if it is approved by the European Medicines Agency.

Vaccination against coronavirus started in Estonia on December 27, 2020, at the moment 37 369 residents of the country have already been vaccinated. The total number of COVID-19 cases is 69,193, and 615 Estonians have died from the infection.

As NEWS.ru wrote, in Estonia, a 31-year-old employee of the Rescue Board died after being injected with the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine two weeks ago. It is not yet known whether the drug itself led to the death of the man, or whether the cause of the tragedy was different. After the vaccination, the man began to have a headache and a fever. After 10 days, the symptoms became more severe and he was taken to the hospital.

A spokesperson for the Medicines Department urged the country's population to report if mild side effects after vaccination persist for more than three to four days. She reiterated that the AstraZenec vaccine is safe and should not be feared. Fever and headache usually go away one to two days after drug administration.
