Bahrain has approved the use of the Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik Light as a booster.

“The Kingdom of Bahrain has officially authorized the use of the single-use Sputnik Light vaccine as one of two possible boosters in the national revaccination program,” the report says.

It is noted that residents of Bahrain can use Sputnik Light or the Pfizer/Biontech vaccine as a booster during re-vaccination.

The Sputnik Light vaccine is the first component (recombinant human adenovirus of the vaccine) Sputnik V"). The effectiveness of the one-component vaccine "Sputnik Light" is 79.4% from the 28th day after receiving immunization.

The calculation of the effectiveness was carried out on the basis of data from Russians who received only one injection as part of the mass civil vaccination program, and who did not receive second injection for any reason between December 5, 2020 and April 15, 2021. The effectiveness rate of about 80% exceeds that of many vaccines that require two shots.

Sputnik V is approved for use in 70 countries with a total population of more than 4 billion people.
