Palestine Approves Use of Russia’s Single-Dose Sputnik Light COVID-19 Vaccine – RDIF
Palestine approved the use of Russia’s single-dose Sputnik Light vaccine against the Coronavirus, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) announced on Monday.
“RDIF announces the approval of the Russian single-dose Sputnik Light vaccine against Coronavirus by the Ministry of Health of the State of Palestine,” RDIF said in a press release.
The use of the two-dose Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 was approved by the Palestinian authorities under the emergency use authorisation procedure, back in January.
“Using the single-dose Sputnik Light vaccine significantly reduces the possibility of severe cases leading to hospitalisation.
“Thanks to Sputnik Light, authorities in Palestine will be able to immunise large groups in a shorter time, achieving herd immunity faster,’’ RDIF CEO Kirill Dmitriev said.
