At this crucial time the entire world awaits the most for a viable solution for the novel coronavirus. The chief of the World Health organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has also confirmed that the real hope of ending the epidemic is now only by a vaccine. A number of vaccine manufacturers have also given considerable relief by saying that their Vaccine candidates are 90 to 95% effective. Now the next question in people’s mind is about their access to the vaccine and the price of the vaccine to come.
A significant piece of information has been revealed regarding the first registered Sputnik-5 vaccine in the world. The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) released a statement on Tuesday, stating that one dose of Sputnik 5 (Vaccine Dose Price) would be under $10 in the international market. One person will require 2 doses of the vaccine. This implies that people will have to spend about $20 for this vaccine. However, this vaccine will be given free to citizens of Russia. The vaccine has been developed jointly by the Gamalia National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF).
International delivery of Sputnik-5 vaccine will begin from January 2021. Initially, it will be made available to those with whom the manufacturers have partnered with. Talking about its results and its effects, according to the second interim analysis of the clinical trial, this vaccine has been found to be 91.4% effective after 28 days of the initial dose.
