The effectiveness of the Russian Sputnik Light vaccine reaches almost 84% among older patients. This is evidenced by the results of a study by Argentine scientists, TASS reports.

Sputnik Light has shown an effectiveness of 78.6-83.7% against coronavirus among elderly people aged 60-79 years.

Scientists emphasize that the effectiveness of Sputnik Light for this age group, where people are at risk more than others, is much higher than many other vaccines, which consist of two components.

The Sputnik Light vaccine has an efficacy rate of over 87% against hospitalization. Calculations are made on the basis of information from more than 40,000 people,

The published study was authored by 15 experts.

The Sputnik Light single-component vaccine was registered in Russia in May. Volunteers from Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and Ghana, in particular, took part in its research.
