HCMC – Vietnam has registered to buy a large volume of doses of the Covid-19 vaccine manufactured by Russia, the first coronavirus vaccine to be launched in the global market, Acting Ministry of Health Nguyen Thanh Long told a meeting held by the national steering committee for Covid-19 infection prevention and control today, August 14.

The Russian Embassy in Vietnam has also written to the Vietnamese Government proposing to offer the country medical equipment, biological medicinal products and the newly launched coronavirus vaccine, named Sputnik V, Tuoi Tre Online reported.

After working with the Russian side, Vietnam registered for 50 to 150 million doses of the vaccine, including the part set to be donated by Russia.

However, when Vietnam will receive and purchase the vaccine is unknown, as some procedures need to be completed, while the selling price of the vaccine has yet to be announced.

Alexey Repik, head of Russian pharmaceutical company R-Pharm, said that the export price of the Covid-19 vaccine from Russia may be at least US$10 for two doses.

The first shipment of the vaccine may be fairly expensive, but the price will reduce when the output is large enough, according to Repik.
