Vastavam web: More than 3,000 people in Moscow have been vaccinated against novel coronavirus, the media has reported. “More than 3,000 volunteers have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus. None of them have problems. People feel good,” Sergey Sobyanin, the Mayor of Moscow, told Rossiya 1 TV channel on Sunday. “I myself went through this vaccination procedure and you see — nothing happened to me, although several months have already passed”.
Sputnik V, an adenovirus vector-based vaccine, was developed by the Gamaleya Scientific Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, along with the Russian Direct Investment Fund and registered on August 11. “Several thousand people have passed the required medical tests to be registered as potential candidates for carrying out the tests,” Sobyanin said. The vaccine was developed on a platform that had been used for a number of other vaccines.
