Russia’s ‘Sputnik V’ Covid-19 vaccine will cost $13 a pop, officials hope price will quickly go down once production accelerates

Sputnik V is just one of a multitude of Covid-19 vaccines being produced in Russia. The second, produced by the Siberia-based Vector lab, is due to be registered by mid-October. On Wednesday, the country’s Federal Antimonopoly Service announced that one dose of any coronavirus vaccine would cost less than 1,000 rubles ($13).

On August 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the country had registered the world’s first Covid-19 vaccine. It is currently in its third and final stage of clinical trials, involving 40,000 volunteers. The vaccine has been criticized by some Western countries as being unsafe due to its supposedly too rapid development and improper testing. However, at the start of September, respected British medical journal The Lancet published a study by the developers of the vaccine, showing it to be 100 percent effective, producing antibodies in all 76 participants in early-stage trials.
