The President of Argentina Alberto Fernandez was vaccinated against the coronavirus, the Izvestia newspaper writes. He used the Russian drug Sputnik V. The head of state told about this in his account. The President expressed gratitude to the creators of the vaccine and everyone who brought the drug to the country. He also thanked Argentine doctors for their dedicated work.

Alberto Fernandez recalled that the Russian vaccine will protect people from the pandemic. He appealed to the people of the country to follow his example.

On January 20, the country approved the use of the Russian vaccine for residents over 60 years old.

Argentina started vaccination against coronavirus at the end of last year. Vaccinations with the Russian drug began on December 29. The vaccine has already been delivered to all regions of the Latin American country. The first to vaccinate are doctors who work in intensive care. They are given injections right at the workplace. Ten million people are expected to receive the vaccine by early spring.

Argentine President Alberto Fernandez expressed gratitude to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for the supply of the drug and for the position that Russia has shown in relation to the Latin American country. The head of state is confident that the vaccine has allowed Argentina to set foot on the "road of hope."

The second batch of the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine was delivered to Argentina a week ago.
