Russia to carry out mass vaccination in early 2021

President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeyev stated on Monday that the country could produce enough COVID-19 vaccine for mass vaccination by the beginning of 2021. He admitted that it will take time to produce "tens and hundreds of millions of vaccine doses," but added "that if everything is all right, as we plan and as big companies in other countries plan, it will probably be possible at the beginning of next year."

The scientist warned though that "vaccine development is a long thing. You see, if you want to prove that the candidate vaccine you have developed really works for, say, six months, then clinical tests of such a vaccine should take a long time."

According to the latest information, the country has 818,120 confirmed coronavirus cases and 603,329 reportedly recovered patients.
