Argentina approves use of Sputnik Light vaccine

Argentina's Health Ministry approved on Monday the use of Russia's Sputnik Light vaccine against COVID-19 both as a standalone jab and a booster shot.

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) announced the news citing the ministry, noting that Sputnik Light was determined to be an "effective universal booster" if combined with vaccines developed by Moderna and AstraZeneca, as well as Chinese companies Sinopharm and CanSino Biologics.

Last month, a Lancet study confirmed Sputnik Light's safety while reiterating the shot's effectiveness at around 75%.
