Gamaleya seeks approval of Sputnik V for teens

Russia's Gamaleya Research Institute requested on Thursday the Health Ministry to approve its COVID-19 vaccine Gam-Covid-Vac-M for use among teenagers.

"In accordance with the established procedure, the documents will be scrutinized and a decision will be made whether the vaccine deserves government registration," the Russian Health Ministry noted in a statement.

Gam-Covid-Vac vaccine is registered under the name Sputnik V, and is broadly used both in Russia and in numerous countries across the world. However, it hasn't been approved for use in the Western world.
