HUNGARY BECOMES THE FIRST COUNTRY IN EU TO AUTHORIZE THE SPUTNIK V VACCINE
HUNGARY BECOMES THE FIRST COUNTRY IN EU TO AUTHORIZE THE SPUTNIK V VACCINE

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF, Russias sovereign wealth fund) announces the Sputnik V vaccine has been approved by the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition of Hungary (OGYÉI).

Thus Hungary has become the first country in the European Union to authorize the use of Sputnik V. The vaccine was approved under the emergency use authorization procedure. The approval is based on the results of the clinical trials of Sputnik V in Russia and a comprehensive assessment of the vaccine by experts in Hungary.

Sputnik V had been registered earlier under the same procedure in Algeria, Argentina, Bolivia, Serbia, Palestine, Venezuela, Paraguay and Turkmenistan. The vaccine is also registered in Russia and Belarus.
Sputnik V - Russia is fifth on the list of vaccine makers
Sputnik V - Russia is fifth on the list of vaccine makers
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- When it comes to Covid-19 vaccines, a lot of attention seems to have centered on the ones being made in the West. So it may come as a surprise that Russia is fifth on the list of vaccine makers with the most doses under contract through pre-purchase agreements, according to Bloombergs Covid-19 Vaccine Tracker. The shot whimsically named Sputnik V and developed by the Gamaleya institute is just behind GlaxoSmithKline Plc and Sanofis candidate in the rankings and ahead of the shots developed by Moderna Inc. and Johnson & Johnson. This is notable for a vaccine that has yet to be featured in any peer-reviewed scientific journal. How do we know we can trust it?
