The Sputnik Light vaccine is approved by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia.


The one-component Sputnik Light coronavirus vaccine has been approved for use in Armenia, follows from the message of the Russian Direct Investment Fund.

“RDIF announces the approval of the use of the Russian single-component Sputnik Light coronavirus vaccine by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia,” — said the Foundation.

Sputnik Light is the first component of the Sputnik V vaccine. Vaccination with Sputnik Light will limit the spread of coronavirus in the country and accelerate the creation of population immunity, RDIF notes. In February 2021, the two-component vaccine Sputnik V was approved in Armenia.

Sputnik Light demonstrates high safety and efficacy during vaccination of the population in a number of countries. In particular, data from the Ministry of Health of the province of Buenos Aires (Argentina) showed the effectiveness of the Sputnik Light vaccine at the level of 78.6-83.7% when vaccinating the elderly. In Paraguay, according to the Ministry of Health of the country, the effectiveness of the drug was 93.5% during mass vaccination.

Due to the high safety and effectiveness in a number of countries, the Sputnik Light vaccine is currently used not only independently, but is also being studied in combination with drugs from other manufacturers.
