Turkey says will start using Sputnik V vaccine soon

Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said on Thursday that the country will soon begin using Russia's Sputnik V vaccine against the coronavirus.

"I would like to inform you that the use of Sputnik V will begin in the near future," Koca stated after a meeting of the ministry’s Coronavirus Scientific Advisory Board.

Earlier this week, advisory board member Afsin Emre Kayipmaz said Turkey will start manufacturing the Russian jab soon. Turkey is currently using the Chinese jab developed by Sinovac, as well as the Pfizer/BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine.
