President Vladimir Putin told health officials on Wednesday to start widespread vaccinations next week, adding that Russia has produced close to 2 million doses of its Sputnik V vaccine. “I would ask you to organise the work so that by the end of next week we will have started this large-scale vaccination,” Mr Putin said.
The President noted that teachers and medics will be the first to receive the jab.
