The Presidency’s press secretary said that it was ‘obvious’ that such a number of people will not be vaccinated by September and October 2021. ‘We see that just this week, the number of people who wanted to be vaccinated began to grow,’ he warned.

According to Russian authorities’ estimates, in order to achieve herd immunity in the country, it is necessary to vaccinate 60 percent of the population; that is, nearly 69 million people.

However, Health Minister Mikhail Murashko informed on Monday that so far, the number of people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 in the country amounted to 23 million.

Mass vaccination of the adult population above 18 years of age began in Russia’s regions on January 18. Citizens can get vaccinated for free with one of the vaccines registered in the country: Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona, CoviVac and, more recently, Sputnik Light, a single-dose version of the Sputnik V vaccine against the coronavirus.
