MOSCOW, February 12 - RIA Novosti. Former chief sanitary doctor, State Duma deputy Gennady Onishchenko, in an interview with Sobesednik.ru, explained why three vaccines against COVID-19 have been developed in Russia.

“Having created three vaccines, we showed the whole world that our scientific school, sharpened for vaccine sovereignty, our immunology retains its leading positions on the planet,” Onishchenko explained.

He also noted the variety of Russian drugs.

"We have vaccines of all types that exist: the genetically engineered Sputnik V, the synthetic" vector "vaccine, and the third - the classic, routine, orthodox vaccine, from which it all began," Onishchenko said.

The deputy added that he himself had recently been successfully vaccinated.

In Russia, it is now possible to be vaccinated against coronavirus with the Sputnik V drug. It was developed by the Gamaleya Center in cooperation with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) based on the well-studied human adenovirus platform. The drug became the world's first registered vaccine against COVID-19.

From the beginning of March, it will be possible to vaccinate with a drug from the Novosibirsk center "Vector" - "EpiVacCorona", and in early April, the use of "Kovivak" by the Chumakov Center will begin, if it successfully passes registration in February, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova said earlier.
