"As part of post-registration trials, more than 300 volunteers were vaccinated. 14% of them had complaints of muscle pain and weakness, but all symptoms pass during the day. Sometimes the temperature rises," said Mikhail Murashko.
The head of the Russian Ministry of Health said that the Sputnik V vaccine is produced at three large enterprises. Work is being carried out at a given pace. In addition, they are developing a large number of doses in lyophilic and liquid forms.
"The broader vaccination of the population will take place after the development of a large amount of the drug. Vaccination of the population that is not at risk will begin by November-December 2020," said Mikhail Murashko.
Russia registered a coronavirus vaccine in early August. Ilnaz Imatdinova, head of the Center for Virology and Biotechnology "Vector," previously reported that 6 people out of 100 complained of malaise after the vaccination.
