MOSCOW, June 12. /TASS/. The number of people vaccinated against coronavirus in Russia has reached 18 mln people, while no cases of serious complications have been recorded. This suggests that vaccination in the country should be wider, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday.
"It seems to me that this is quite convincing proof that vaccination should be wider," Putin said.
The volume of manufactured coronavirus vaccines in Russia makes it possible to vaccinate everyone who wants it, Putin said.
"Now in Russia, in terms of the produced vaccine volume, we can vaccinate everyone who wants to," he said.
However, the president continued, the issue is that people "are wary of all such procedures." "This is a common occurrence," Putin said.
Currently, there are four vaccines registered in Russia: Sputnik V and Sputnik Light from the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, EpiVacCorona by the Vector State Scientific Center of Virology and Biotechnology, and CoviVac vaccine by the Chumakov Federal Scientific Center. Vaccines Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona, and CoviVac are two-component, Sputnik Light is a one-component vaccine.
