Russia to boost production of COVID vaccines

Russian manufacturers of the domestic COVID vaccine, currently producing 30 million vaccination sets per month, will increase production to reach a monthly goal of 45 million, First Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Vasily Osmakov said on Friday.

Osmakov explained that Russia isn't building its production schedule around singular doses, but "vaccination sets," with one set corresponding to the number of doses necessary for one person to be fully immunized.

"Russian companies have quite a few different projects, plus a non-trivial task of adapting existing vaccines to new strains is being solved," Osmakov said, adding that the possibility of a new Russian COVID vaccine appearing on the market is not very likely.
