Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said that the Russian vaccine against the coronavirus infection COVID-19 “Sputnik V” can be registered in Vienna at the national level if the approval process at the EU level takes too long.
He announced this during a live broadcast on Instagram.
“Of course, there is an opportunity to do this at the national level, if it takes too long at the European level,” Kurz said.
Kurz noted that all procedures at the European Medicines Agency take a very long time. In his opinion, including in this regard, Europe lags behind in the issue of vaccination from the United States and Great Britain.
Earlier, the Austrian Chancellor said that the government of the country in the coming days will discuss with doctors the possibility of self-registration of the Russian vaccine against the coronavirus “Sputnik V”.
