Russia to start making COVID-19 vaccine in November

Russia's Vector State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology said on Sunday it could launch the production of its COVID-19 vaccine in November.

"We expect to start production already in November this year. So, closer to the end of the year and the start of the next year we can talk about switching to vaccination at least for [people] from risk groups with a further switch to massive vaccination," the center's director-general Rinat Maksyutov stated.

Yesterday, the country's Health Minister Mikhail Murashko announced Russia was preparing to start a mass vaccination campaign, albeit in October.
