Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is doing well after being vaccinated with the Russian drug Sputnik V. The head of state himself spoke about this.
“I felt good (after vaccination - editor's note). Whenever you are given a vaccine, there is a reaction in the form of a slight fever or a bad state. I felt drowsy and after that, a slight dizziness. I rested and now I feel 100%,”Maduro said during a speech, which was broadcast on Twitter.
Nicolas Maduro, along with his wife Celia Flores, were vaccinated for the prevention of coronavirus with the Sputnik V vaccine on Saturday, March 6.
Recall that the first batch of the Russian drug arrived in Venezuela on February 13. Vaccination in the country started on 18 February. The first vaccinations were received by medical workers and other citizens most at risk of infection.
Sputnik V is the world's first drug against COVID-19, registered in Russia in August last year. The vaccine was created by the Gamaleya Research Institute with the assistance of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
