Vacuna Sputnik V.

Panama requests 3 million doses of Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 from Russia

The Minister of Health, Luis Francisco Sucre, sent a note this Wednesday, February 3 to Kirill Dmitriev , CEO of the Russian Fund for Direct Investment, to express Panama's interest in acquiring 3 million Sputnik V vaccine, to vaccinate 1.5 million people against Covid-19.
According to the note sent by Sucre, Panama wanted these vaccines to begin shipping to the country as of March 2021.

The information came out after the note sent to the Russian Fund for Direct Investment, based in the city of Moscow, was leaked on Thursday.

On February 2, it was known that the Russian Sputnik V vaccine has an efficacy of 91.6% against Covid-19 in its symptomatic manifestations.

The above is the conclusion of clinical trials published by The Lancet medical journal and validated by independent experts.

Like the rest of the vaccines against Covid-19, after the first dose, the second must be given after 21 days to achieve an immunization against the new coronavirus.

In a part of the note, Sucre informs Dmitriev that it would be ready to issue authorization for the vaccine through the Department of Pharmacies and Drugs of the Ministry of Health.

Oh ya 22 days ago
For 20 years they have tried and failed to make a vaccine for the corona virus. And now they say they created one in less than a year and you are willing to take it. You are as stupid as they are liers, but hey if your over 18 and making your own decisions go for it. I could care less if it kills you.
