“I think within the next two weeks we can expect that in Moscow and the Moscow region vaccination will go not on the production principle, but on the territorial basis. This is what is called mass vaccination,” he said.
Alexander Gintsburg explained that in two weeks a much larger number of vaccine doses will go into civilian circulation than had been received so far. According to the data given by him, the company "Generium" starts deliveries this weekend. In two weeks, the site of two more manufacturers is planning to start operating - R-Pharma and Binnopharm at the same time.
"Everything is going according to plan. By the end of November, one can count on half a million doses of vaccine, which will go into civilian circulation. And in December, the figure will be three times more," said the director of the Center. Gamalei.
As previously reported, so far, the consignments of Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus arriving in the regions were intended only for risk groups, in particular, doctors and teachers.
As RG previously reported, today the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) reported that according to the first interim analysis of the data, the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 during the third phase of clinical trials in the Russian Federation demonstrated 92 percent effectiveness.
