Mass vaccination of residents of Russia against coronavirus infection will begin on January 18, TASS reports.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova, two Russian vaccines have been registered in the country. It is planned that the third will be registered soon.
As Russkiy Mir reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that it is time to start mass vaccination of Russian residents against coronavirus infection next week. He urged to start preparing the appropriate infrastructure, adding that the drug did not require any special conditions for transportation. Fortunately, Vladimir Putin noted, “everything works much easier and more efficiently with us”.
