Peskov stressed that, however, “now, when Sputnik V has effectively become one of the most demanded vaccines in the world.”
Last week the Russian President admitted at his annual press conference that he could not get vaccinated because his age, 68, did not allow it, but that he would do so as soon as the opportunity arose.
Until now, the Russian vaccine, which began to be used massively in the country on December 15, was only being applied to people between 18 and 60 years old, but as of Monday, those over that age will be able to register in health centers .
Argentina, which received the first batch of 300,000 doses of Sputnik V this week, will begin vaccination among its population on Tuesday.
Several Latin American countries have shown great interest in receiving the vaccine created by the Gamaleya Center in January, according to the Russian sovereign wealth fund.
