Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov said that vaccination of Russians against coronavirus could be completed by June. This was reported on January 20 by TASS.

Earlier, the head of the department reported that the Russian regions should receive about 70 million doses of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine by the summer. “Yes, absolutely right,” he said on the YouTube channel, answering a clarification question about whether vaccinations will be fully completed by June.

Mass vaccination against coronavirus began on January 18 in Russian regions. Citizens will be able to choose one of two vaccines registered in the country - "Sputnik V" or "EpiVacCorona".

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that about 200 thousand people have already been vaccinated against coronavirus in the capital.

Russia was the first in the world to register a vaccine against coronavirus - it was named Sputnik V. It was developed by the N.F. Gamalei. The state scientific center "Vector" has also developed a vaccine "EpiVacCorona" based on synthetic peptides in the country.

In addition, the Minister of Health of Russia Mikhail Murashko said that the department received documents for registration of the third domestic vaccine against coronavirus, developed by the Chumakov Center.
