G’gram to begin Sputnik V trial soon

Thursday, 17 June 2021 | Parvesh Sharma | Gurugram

The Gurugram health department will start trials of Russia’s coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V within two-three days at a private hospital of the district.

After the trial, Sputnik V will be officially launched by the Haryana Government, a senior official of the district health department said.

With this initiative, Gurugram will become among the first districts in Haryana, where the Russian-made vaccine’s trial will begin.

A senior health official requesting anonymity said that the trial of the Sputnik V vaccine will first be conducted on at least 400 staffers of a private hospital.

“Sputnik V will be made available in Gurugram through the State Government. However, the supply chain and mechanism of vaccination will be followed accordingly,” he said.

The official further said a training session of health workers related to the Sputnik V vaccination and its uploading process on the CoWIN app has already been completed. And from now on the Sputnik V vaccine option is also available on the CoWIN-app.
