New Delhi(Moscow), 5/12: Moscow began distributing the Sputnik V vaccine among its citizen in large numbers on Saturday. The vaccines are distributed via 70 clinics. It marked Russia’s first mass vaccination against the deadly coronavirus disease, which has taken more than 43,000 lives.

Moscow, the epicenter of Russia’s coronavirus outbreak, registered 7,993 new cases overnight, up from 6,868 a day before and well above the daily tallies of around 700 seen in early September.

The age for those receiving shots is capped at 60. People with certain underlying health conditions, pregnant women, and those who have had a respiratory illness for the past two weeks are barred from vaccination.

The Sputnik V vaccine is administered in two injections, with the second dose is expected to be given 21 days after the first.
