The bulk of the mass vaccination against coronavirus should be completed by the fall. This was stated by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin during a visit to the state scientific center of virology and biotechnology “Vector”.
The EpiVacCorona vaccine has been created in the Novosibirsk center. It became the second registered Russian vaccine (after Sputnik V of the Gamaleya Institute).
“I am sure that we will absolutely have to complete the bulk of the mass vaccination by the fall,” said the head of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Mishustin said that he knows how much effort has been put by Vector to create EpiVacCorona, so it is important to move to scaling production as soon as possible. He expressed hope that in the near future the industrial production of the drug will reach a serious volume.
In turn, the director of the center, Rinat Maksyutov, said that the covid pandemic and the experience gained during its time by the employees of “Vector” forced to reconsider the development strategy of the center. It will be presented shortly, TASS reports.
