A top Russian scientist says the country will be able to make enough anti-coronavirus vaccine for a nationwide immunization by early 2021. He says it will be necessary to monitor the vaccine -induced antibodies for at least six months. “When we speak about mass vaccination of the population, about

"The vaccine against coronavirus infection, developed by the Gamaleya center, has completed clinical studies, and a package of documents is being prepared for the registration procedure," Murashko said according to the state news agency Tass.

"Once it is authorized, vaccines will start to be used in special groups, first of all on doctors and teachers," he told journalists in Nizhny Novgorod, adding, "we plan wider vaccinations for October," without elaborating further on the vaccine or the vaccination program.

Up to 70 million doses of the Covid - 19 vaccine will be required for mass immunization of Russians against coronavirus, said Ginzburg. Along with the authorities, the country's health organizations are already planning a quick ramping-up of large-scale production in order to meet this demand.

Russian health workers at the frontline of the pandemic will be offered the chance of volunteering to be vaccinated once the vaccine gets approval.

Earlier this week, Reuters had reported that Russia's first COVID-19 vaccine candidate should get government approval by mid-August which showed that the country was pushing hard to become the first to roll out a vaccine.

Kirill Dmitriev, head of Russia's sovereign wealth fund which financed vaccine research, compared its push for a vaccine to the successful launch of the world's first satellite by the Soviet Union.

"It's a Sputnik moment. Americans were surprised when they heard Sputnik's beeping. It's the same with this vaccine. Russia will have got there first," he told CNN.

However the pace of Russia's vaccine development has raised concerns internationally.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S's top infectious diseases official, told lawmakers on Friday: "I do hope that the Chinese and the Russians are actually testing the vaccine before they are administering the vaccine to anyone."

Dimitriev has insisted that Russia's health ministry "is following all necessary strict procedures" and that, "no corners are being cut."

On Saturday, Russia reported 95 deaths from the novel coronavirus, taking its total to 14,058 out of more than 843,000 cases, the world's fourth highest.

Last month, Alexander Sergeyev, president of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said Russia would have enough tens of millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses to carry out a mass vaccination program by the start of 2021.
