Russian Sputnik V vaccine trials in UAE
The vaccine was initially registered for use in Russia in August 2020, making it the first registered Covid-19 vaccine from the 165 being developed across the world.
In UAE clinical trials of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine have moved into the final monitoring phase, now that all 1,000 volunteers received their second dose.
The next step involves monitoring the immune response of the test patients over 180 days.
The vaccine is being trialled on healthy adults from several nationalities in the UAE, aged 18 years and above, with no history of Covid-19 vaccinations or infection, and who have not suffered any communicable or severe respiratory diseases.
