Vietnam’s Vabiotech company and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDFI) on Wednesday announced the first 30,000 doses of Sputnik V have been produced in Vietnam.

A representative of Vabiotech said the Russian partner requires strict standards in producing the jabs, basically divided into seven big steps.

Each box contains 5 vials. If the first batch is qualified, Vabiotech will sign contract to produce Sputnik V.

Vibiotech is capable of churning out 5-7 million of Sputnik V per month. The monthly volume will depend on the semi-finished products provided by Russia.

Dat expressed his great pleasure at working alongside the RDIF to bring Sputnik V to Vietnamese citizens and boosting the nation’s ongoing fight against the pandemic.

He voiced his hope that continued co-operation between the RDIF and VABIOTECH will serve to provide quality and affordable Covid-19 vaccines to Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries.

To date, Sputnik V has been registered in 68 countries with a total population of over 3.7 billion, which is nearly half of the global population. The data obtained by regulators of a number of countries during the vaccination of people in Mexico, Argentina, Serbia, Bahrain, Hungary, the UAE, and others, demonstrates that Sputnik V is one of the safest and most effective vaccines against the coronavirus.

Russia says the efficacy of the vaccine is 97.6 percent.

In Vietnam, Sputnik V got approval from the Ministry of Health on March 23, 2021, VNA cited.
