The first batch of Russian-made single-dose Sputnik Light vaccine will soon be distributed among citizens. Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murasko made the announcement on Saturday.
Murasco said 2.5 million doses of the vaccine would be ready for use by the end of this month.
He said the vaccine would be given to those who have contracted covid 19 and who have received the two-dose vaccine six months or more ago.
Russian authorities are encouraging people to re-vaccinate as the deadly contagious Delta variant spreads rapidly.
The Sputnik light vaccine, developed by Russia’s Gamalia National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, received official approval for use in the country in May this year.
