“As for vaccination against the coronavirus infection, right now simultaneously the increase in production and the post-registration observation are underway. First of all, of course, the vaccines will be supplied for healthcare workers and instructors, this [vaccination] will be absolutely voluntary. The first large batches will be supplied as early as September,” Russian Healthcare Minister Mikhail Murashko told journalists.

He also added that currently several more vaccines against the coronavirus are at the clinical trials or at the registration stage. “That is why I think that we’ll reach maximal volumes in November-December. We’ll need to separate inoculation against the flu and against the coronavirus infection,” he concluded.

On August 27, the Healthcare Minister reported that the deliveries of the first doses of the vaccine against the coronavirus to medical institutions within the framework of post-registration trials have started already.

“The groups for post-registration monitoring are now being formed. More than 2,500 people have been chosen of the total of 40,000 to be selected,” the minister said.
