Two hours after the so-called booster, he is fine. As with his first vaccination last June, no cameras were allowed this time either. Only a video was published showing Putin in conversation with Denis Logunov from the Gamaleja Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology. Its scientists developed the Sputnik V vaccine. “Today I received another vaccination, Sputnik Light, on your recommendation and that of your colleagues. It’s called booster vaccination, ”Putin said at the meeting with Logunov, according to Russian media reports.
According to Logunov, more than 50 million people in Russia have now been vaccinated with Sputnik. The vaccination campaign in the country with around 146 million people is running very slowly due to widespread skepticism. According to statistics, only 40 percent of the population are fully protected. On Sunday, the authorities reported 1,252 corona deaths within 24 hours – the second highest daily high since the beginning of the pandemic. In addition, there were almost 37,000 new infections within one day. (APA / red)
