WorldRussiaSupplies of Russian-Sputnik Light COVID-19 booster shots run out amid spike in virus: Reports

Supplies of Russian-Sputnik Light COVID-19 booster shots have run out in the majority of regions as the nation once again witnessed a spike in the virus, as per local media reports.

Russia on Wednesday has reported over 9,000 new COVID-19 infections, an incline of over 3,000 compared to Tuesday.


Sputnik Light consists of the first dose of Russia’s domestically manufactured, two-dose Sputnik V vaccine.

As per information shared by local media, clinics around several Russian regions said that they either had run out or were running low on Sputnik Light.

The reports revealed that, “Russia’s Health Ministry was unable to explain the booster’s absence.”

On Monday, the ministry’s chief visiting infectious disease specialist Vladimir Chulanov recommended first and second Sputnik V components as booster shots six months after one’s previous dose.

Health authorities only put between 10,000 and 30,000 Sputnik Light doses into circulation nationwide in July, as per reports.

An independent tracker notes that around 15.2 million Russians have been revaccinated as of Wednesday, with 69 million more yet to be revaccinated.


Sputnik’s developers have added that they expect the next spike in COVID-19 infections in September.
