Belarus preparing to launch another Russian vaccine from October

According to Interfax, the Minister of Health of Belarus Dmitry Pinevich said on the air of the ONT TV channel that they intend to create the production of another Russian vaccine by October, but already on a full cycle.

“Our second project is a complete vaccine, that is, creating it from scratch, also a Russian vaccine, with other Russian partners at another Belmedpreparatov site. I am sure that sometime in October we will make this vaccine, it will be a full cycle already”, – Pinevich said.

The Minister specified that this is a vector vaccine – by analogy with Sputnik V.

“But we are talking about the creation of another vaccine, that is, this is already a vaccine of our own production. It will not be a vector vaccine, it is an inactivated vaccine. Now it is already being created on the basis of the Republican Scientific and Practical Center for Epidemiology”, – he noted.

As reported, in March in Belarus began the industrial production of the Russian vaccine against coronavirus “Sputnik V”. The planned volume of production is up to 500 thousand doses of the drug per month.
