More than 100,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 will be supplied to Azerbaijan’s Baku city soon, Chairperson of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Valentina Matviyenko said.
Matviyenko made the remark at a meeting with the Speaker of the Azerbaijani parliament Sahiba Gafarova on the sidelines of the spring session of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly, Trend reports referring to TASS.
“The issue of the production of the Russian vaccines against coronavirus in Azerbaijan is being considered,” the chairperson of the Federation Council said.
“I know that an agreement on the supply of more than 100,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 from April through May has been reached because we are well aware that the only way to really stop the pandemic is the mass vaccination,” Matviyenko said.
"We are ready not only to supply vaccines,” the chairperson of the Federation Council said. “As far as I know, the issue related to the production of these vaccines against COVID-19 in Azerbaijan is being considered. This will speed up the mass vaccination against COVID-19 and perhaps, export the vaccines against COVID-19 to other countries, thereby supporting the general attitude towards universal vaccination against COVID-19."
