Belarus to buy 100,000 doses of Russian coronavirus vaccine

Belarus to buy 100,000 doses of Russian coronavirus vaccine

MINSK, 3 November (BelTA) - Belarus plans to purchase 100,000 doses of the Russian coronavirus vaccine at the first stage, Belarus’ Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said in an interview to Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA has learned.

“I think we will start with 100,000 doses of the vaccine. The price is under discussion. It will also depend on whether we are going to buy ready-made vaccines or their components to mix and produce them here. The matter is discussed by the relevant agencies,” Roman Golovchenko said.

He stated that by agreement with Russia, Belarus would be the first country to officially receive the coronavirus vaccine for mass vaccination.

However, it is too early to talk about mass vaccination as clinical trials of the vaccine are still underway. “I expect this stage to be completed in the near future,” he said.
