Mass inoculation against the novel coronavirus infection with the Sputnik V vaccine may begin in Russia in late October, Fyodor Lisitsyn of the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology of the Russian Health Ministry, said on September 28.

“The third phase of the vaccine’s trials is scheduled to be over in late October. Mass vaccination will begin as soon as the third phase is over. I hope it will be successful,” he said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel.

According to Lisitsyn, the vaccine production is expected to be organized at three or four production sites. It is also looked at organizing its production jointly with foreign partners. “Pharmaceutical companies in India alone are capable of manufacturing vaccine enough for literally half of the planet if they work to their full capacity,” he said.
