Moreover, during the testing period, 400 minors received the drug. A total of 700 children underwent the necessary tests to receive their dose of the vaccine. As a result, the researchers found that Sputnik M is quite safe.
It is expected that in total, as part of clinical trials, about 3 thousand adolescents will be vaccinated with the new drug.
According to the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development Anastasia Rakova, vaccines are being tested at 10 polyclinics and two city hospitals. At its core, Sputnik M represents one-fifth of the Sputnik V dose.
