Turkey plans to buy 50 million doses of the Russian vaccine Sputnik V against COVID-19, the Turkish Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca announced on Wednesday.
The agreement, which will commence in May, will take around six months to materialize, Koca said at a press conference Wednesday.
Acknowledging difficulties in the availability of other vaccines during the next two months, which will be resolved later, he said, the Minister noted that the time between the first and second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech (American-German) drug will be extended from six to eight weeks.
