Amid fears that safety could have been compromised, the World Health Organization (WHO) urged Russia to follow international guidelines for producing a vaccine against COVID-19. Moreover, the Russian vaccine is not among the WHO’s list of six vaccines that have reached phase three clinical trials, which involve more widespread testing in humans.

How Does Russian Covid-19 Vaccine Work?
  • As per reports, the vaccine developed by Russia is based on the DNA of a SARS-CoV-2 type adenovirus, a common cold virus.
  • To make it effective, the vaccine uses the weakened virus to deliver small parts of a pathogen and stimulate an immune response.
  • Talking in details, Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya National Research Centre, told news agencies that the coronavirus particles in the vaccine cannot harm the person’s health.
  • He said some people have fever when they get vaccinated; otherwise there is no such side effect of the vaccine.

Why the Russian Covid-19 vaccine under question?
  • According to experts, the Sputnik V has not yet undergone phase 3 trials.
  • Russia said it will undergo human trial on Wednesday.
  • Some other experts criticise that Russia has skipped certain steps that are needed in vaccine development.

Fresh allegations have come up that the Russian government pressurised the scientists to speed up development of the vaccine which may result in deadly consequences.

While making the announcement, Putin said one of his daughters had tested a Russian COVID-19 vaccine on herself and that she is feeling well. He said that the first Russian COVID-19 vaccine forms stable cell and antibody immunity.

According the report in The Lancet, over 76 participants of these trials would be monitored up to 180 days and more rigorous phase 3 clinical trial was planned with the involvement of 40,000 volunteers from different age and risk groups.

“Large, long-term trials including a placebo comparison, and further monitoring are needed to establish the long-term safety and effectiveness of the vaccine for preventing COVID-19 infection The Lancet said.

Earlier, Russia had said that it is planning to produce 6 million doses of coronavirus vaccine per month. The RIA news agency cited Russian Industry Minister Denis Manturov as saying that Russia is planning to produce between 1.5 million and 2 million doses per month of its potential coronavirus vaccine by the year end.

In another development, Russia had said it is looking for a partnership with India for producing COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V. Russian President Vladimir Putin had announced that his country has developed the world’s first vaccine against COVID-19, which works quite effectively and forms a stable immunity against the disease.

The Sputnik V vaccine consists of two shots that use different versions of adenoviruses — virus types, some of which cause the common cold — that the manufacturers have engineered to carry the gene for the surface protein of SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19.
