About sputnik-v vaccine

Sputnik V, which is world’s first registered vaccine against Covid-19, received emergency use authorisation (EUA) in India in April. The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said on Thursday, Sputnik V, the Russian-made vaccine against the coronavirus disease (Covid-19), will soon offer a booster shot or second dose to other vaccine manufacturers. The booster dose has been modified to function against the Delta Covid-19 variant, which was initially discovered in India. The Delta variant, also known as the B1.617.2 strain, is considered to be behind India's disastrous second Covid-19 wave, which peaked in April-May. The Delta variant has been designated as the fourth variant of concern by the World Health Organization (WHO) (VoC).
