Authorities in Moscow are preparing for mass vaccinations against COVID-19, as reported National Post.
Deputy Mayor Anastasia Rakova said on Friday that Moscow residents who want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 may be able to do so as early as next month if large volumes of doses are supplied by then.
Around 9000 Moscow residents have reportedly received both doses of the Sputnik V vaccine as part of an ongoing large-scale trial.
Mass vaccination of the public is not yet possible, as the necessary number of doses of the vaccine have not yet been delivered, Rakova said.
Russia is facing challenges in scaling up production of its vaccine with President Vladimir Putin citing issues with the availability of equipment.
