Affirming that the Sputnik V vaccine is even effective against new strains of COVID-19, Kudashev said this second delivery is very timely.

“As you know, in the near future India also plans to introduce the single-shot ‘Sputnik Light’ vaccine. Only through joint efforts and taking into account the vital needs of our people can we successfully fight COVID-19,” Russian news agency Sputnik quoted Kudashev as saying.

The first consignment of 1,50,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine arrived in India on May 1. A fortnight later, on May 14, the first dose of the vaccine was administered in Hyderabad at Rs 948 + 5 per cent GST per dose. The prices are expected to get lower when the local supply begins.
