Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced the completion of negotiations with Russia on the purchase of the vaccine from COVID-19 “Sputnik V”.
“Purchasing for us in Austria is possible,” Kurz said.
Kurz noted that the purchase of a million doses of Sputnik V would speed up vaccination in Austria.
Earlier it was reported that Austria expects to get a quick admission of the Russian vaccine against the coronavirus “Sputnik V” from the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The country does not exclude that it will register the drug itself.
On March 4, the European Medicines Agency announced the start of the procedure for the sequential examination of the Sputnik V vaccine.
