Argentina Hopes to Start Producing Russian Sputnik V in Near Future, Presidential Adviser Says

MOSCOW, (Sputnik) – Argentina hopes to receive Russia’s technology for the production of Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19, acquiring the capacity to self-produce the vaccine in the near future, Cecilia Nicolini, an adviser to the Argentine president, told Sputnik in an interview.

Earlier in December, Argentine President Alberto Fernandez said that Buenos Aires had signed a contract with Russia for the supply of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine and expected to vaccinate 10 million people in the January-February period. In early November, the president told Sputnik that Argentina would receive 25 million doses of the Russian vaccine, of which 10 million doses will arrive in December and 15 million doses in early January.
