- Russia launches ‘booster dose’ injection.
- Officials say the Delta Plus variant has been confirmed in the country.
- The mayor of Moscow said that everyone should be ready to be vaccinated.
Since last Thursday, there have been over 2,000 cases of Covid in the country every day. Mortality rates are also high. The decision to expand the ‘booster dose’ vaccine came after it was confirmed that most of the new cases were Delta variants. Booster shots are provided using a two-dose Sputnik VV vaccine and a single-shot Sputnik Lite, developed locally in Russia.
The decision comes as the number of Covid victims has increased. Even half the population of the country has not yet received the first dose. Meanwhile, the Delta variants became widespread. The current situation is different from the first weeks of June. Covid spreads, including in Moscow. With the confirmation of the Delta Plus variant, the authorities decided to give the ‘booster dose’ injection.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said he had received a booster dose of the vaccine. “The situation is critical. I say people who have completed six months after vaccination should take a booster dose. It is necessary to survive the virus.
