"In the first stage of the coronavirus vaccination campaign, 10 million people will get the Russian medicine," Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said, although she did not inform about the start date of the campaign.
Health Minister Carlos Alvarado, Foreign Affairs Minister Jorge Arreaza, and the Russian Ambassador to Venezuela Serguei Melik-Bagdasarov also took part in the signing of this agreement.
"Venezuela is also contributing to Russia on Sputnik V since it is taking part in phase three of its vaccine clinical trial," Rodriguez explained.
Vaccination of 2000 volunteers in Venezuela will begin in coming days as part of double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials of the Sputnik V vaccine. Venezuela is the first country in Latin America to start the clinical trial. ��: RDIF @News5PH@onenewsphpic.twitter.com/5WceWAV2FN
