If you happened to miss the news, Russia announced the world's first registered coronavirus vaccine, and now the country's Health Ministry has said production has begun.
The announcement comes from Russia's Health Ministry and says that the coronavirus vaccine named 'Sputnik V', which is named after the famous Russian space satellite, has begun production. The vaccine officially formula officially called 'Gam-COVID-Vak' was developed by the Gamaleya National Research Center in the Russian capital, and for effective use, the two components must be administered three weeks apart to trigger an immune response.
The Russian Health Ministry approved the vaccine after it passed Phase 2 trials, which raised concerns from many health professionals worldwide as a vaccine is usually approved after it passes the extensive Phase 3 trial. However, while Sputnik V has gone into production, it won't be distributed out to the general population of Russia until January 2021, which gives health professionals time to measure its effectiveness.
