Uzbekistan received a new batch of Sputnik Light vaccine. This was reported to TASS on Friday in the press service of the Ministry of Health of the Republic.

“On December 10, 200,000 doses of the one-component Russian vaccine Sputnik Light were delivered to Tashkent,” a representative of the department said. According to him, 7,500 doses of this drug have already been delivered to the republic.

Mass vaccination of the population in Uzbekistan began in April. For this, the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, a drug manufactured in India under license from the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca, a vaccine from the Chinese company Anhui Zhifei Longcom Biopharmaceutical, and American drugs Moderna and Pfizer are used. According to the latest data, in a republic with a population of about 35 million people, more than 40 million doses of vaccines have already been used for vaccination.

The Russian Sputnik V vaccine was certified for use in Uzbekistan in February 2021. In the spring of the same year, a technological transfer process was organized for the production of the Sputnik V vaccine in Uzbekistan. To date, the country has launched mass production of the Russian drug, which is actively used during the campaign to vaccinate the population.
