    The idea that Sputnik V, with basically no side effects compared to all of the western vaccines, is rushed is simply nonsense.

    Well one of the viral vectors it uses was the same one that was theorized to lower resistance to AIDS in a separate study

    Anyway, why didn't Putin take it? He seemed to wait for the new one that's arriving now.

    How many different vaccines do you have available in St.Pete?

    We also don't know which vaccine Putin took. Do you?

    They said Putins own daughter took part in the Sputnik V safety trials. This was a PR cockup for them IMO. The newer vaccine has to be more risky than Sputnik. Just say you took the Sputnik and be done with it. Even if you didn't. Putin is 68 so he wanted to wait.

    Well he waited until the 2nd vaccine was just coming out, a little risky to wait all this time for a man his age - and then declined to tell anybody which one he took

    Or is this another chess move from Grandmaster Putin, intended to raise the repute of both vaccines in one stroke? unshaven

    India now eh. India was producing some retread of Austrazeneca vaccine for Ukraine but now that has been halted. Maybe Ukraine will still end up with Sputnik.

    Foreign Ministry Confirms India's Suspension Of CoviShield Coronavirus Vaccine Supply To Ukraine

    Даша Зубкова

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) confirms the suspension by India of the supply to Ukraine of the CoviShield (AstraZeneca) coronavirus vaccine produced by the Serum Institute India.

    Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced this at a briefing, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

    "I want to thank the government of India for the delivery of the first batch. Indeed, now the export of vaccine from India has been paused. I will not go into details, but this is a fact," he said.

    At the same time, Kuleba did not comment on the information about the alleged receipt of a letter from the Indian embassy regarding the discrediting statements in Ukraine regarding the vaccine manufacturer.

    Yeah, that's why I opted for that one, I have second dose scheduled next week

    If original version worked on Ebola this would work on it's limp dicked cousin no problem

    And if there were a single serious side effect of Sputnik V everyone and their grandma would have bee screaming about it to high heavens from the get go

    Nobody found as single problem

    They also signed a deal to start the production of Sputnik V in India:

    On Monday, Indian regulators approved Russia’s Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine. Now, the state-backed Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), which is marketing the Sputnik V vaccine, has plans to make the world’s second most populous country into a major manufacturing hub.

    The RDIF said in early April that it had brokered an agreement with Indian pharmaceutical firm Dr. Reddy’s to produce 100 million shots in the country within an unspecified time frame. After the approval, the RDIF said it expects to produce 850 million doses in India annually after striking deals with five Indian pharmaceutical companies to produce the shots.

    I hope Italy and Germany start production of Sputnik V soon.

    Anyway, why didn't Putin take it? He seemed to wait for the new one that's arriving now.

    He didn't ask what vaccine he was given, he said he didn't care.

    We also don't know which vaccine Putin took. Do you?

    When a reporter asked Putin which he had he said they would have to ask his doctor because he did not know or care.

    The newer vaccine has to be more risky than Sputnik.

    Why?

    It will have gone through all the same procedures and tests... they just didn't have the head start that the Sputnik V had so it took longer.

    If it was rushed then why would it take this long... if you are going to rush something at least get it out early.

    Well he waited until the 2nd vaccine was just coming out, a little risky to wait all this time for a man his age - and then declined to tell anybody which one he took

    There were three vaccines he could have taken, not including one for animals. There are two normal ones and a one off jab version too.

    Or is this another chess move from Grandmaster Putin, intended to raise the repute of both vaccines in one stroke? unshaven
    No single being alone can decipher the layers of logic stacked behind his every move!

    I have had flu vaccine shots for about the last decade... I have never asked who made them or to show me evidence it was not going to kill me.

    He wouldn't have if he simply took the first one available

    He is not in a high risk group so why hurry?

    India now eh. India was producing some retread of Austrazeneca vaccine for Ukraine but now that has been halted. Maybe Ukraine will still end up with Sputnik.

    In the background the politicians will, but will ban Sputnik from their options for their people no matter how many it kills. At least they are consistent.

    Nobody found as single problem

    Indeed, they wont sing its praises, but they haven't ripped in to it like they normally would... they are not normally above telling lies, which is a bit of a surprise.

    Maybe because they know at the end of the day they might need some themselves when other options prove not so desirable.

    I think Germany already has orders for vaccines and is only interested in Sputnik V if it can arrive in quantity in the next month or two... otherwise they expect their other vaccines to arrive to fill the need.

    Interest in Sputnik V in Central Europe
    Lev Udolsky & Gabor Tanacs • 04/16/2021

    Twenty million doses of Sputnik V vaccine will be produced at the Torlak Institute of Virology and Serum in Belgrade. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic also announced that the country is already packaging the Russian vaccine, but this is only the first step:

    "We intend to develop both research and production - everything that will allow us to become a super-powerful vaccine manufacturer in the next ten to twelve years".

    Sputnik V was highly appreciated by the authoritative medical journal Lancet, and its use has already been approved in sixty countries around the world. Moreover, among the EU countries, only Hungary is vaccinated with this drug.

    The purchase of Sputnik V by Slovakia caused a government crisis and led to the resignation of the prime minister. The new government sent samples of the Russian vaccine to Hungary for testing. It is expected to start vaccination in Slovakia in early May.

    “I agree that we must make up for the lack of vaccines. But it is just as important to ensure that our citizens receive a reliable and safe vaccine that will help save human lives, ”explained the delay in vaccination, Chairperson of the Health Committee of the National Council (Parliament) of Slovakia, Yana Bitto Tsyganikova.

    Meanwhile, Austria has already announced the purchase of one million doses of Sputnik V. The Czech Republic is also considering this possibility after the resignation of the Minister of Health, who opposed the purchase of the Russian vaccine.

    Russia’s Sputnik V recognized as safest and most efficient Covid vaccine in Hungary

    Thus, according to the Hungarian data, Sputnik V has up to 32 fewer fatalities and six times lower infection rate than the Pfizer vaccine.

    MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine has been recognized as the safest and most efficient vaccine, as follows form Sunday’s post on the vaccine’s official Twitter account.

    "The government of Hungary, the 1st EU country to start using Sputnik V, released its latest data on safety and efficacy across 5 vaccines," it reads. "SputnikV has the best safety (7-32 times fewer deaths cases) and efficacy (2-7 times fewer COVID infections) per 100,000 vaccinated."

    Thus, according to the Hungarian data, Sputnik V has up to 32 fewer fatalities and six times lower infection rate than the Pfizer vaccine.

    The Sputnik V account recalled the April 22 statement by Hungary’s PM chief of staff Gergely Gulyas who said that Sinopharm is better than Pfizer, but Sputnik V is the best.

    Hungary was the first European Union nation to receive Sputnik V samples for tests in November 2020. In February 2021, Hungary’s National Public Health Center certified the use of the Russian vaccine in Hungary.

    To date, five coronavirus vaccines are available in Hungary, namely Pfizer and BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, and Sputnik V.
