No later than May, the Sputnik Light vaccine must enter civilian circulation, TASS reports. Alexey Repik, who heads the R-Pharm company, promised that this would happen this spring. He said this during a meeting on vaccination against coronavirus, which was chaired by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, March 22.

Health Minister Mikhail Murashko previously reported that clinical trials of the drug had come to an end. According to him, all documents for registration are ready.

The difference between the new modification and Sputnik V is that vaccination participants will be given one injection. Sputnik Light is planned to be used for inoculation of young people from 18 to 30 years old, in whom the necessary immune response should follow after just one replication.
