Leading healthcare chain Apollo Hospitals Group has said that the Russian coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V, will be available in India through the Apollo system from the second week of June.

 

Sputnik V is the third vaccine to be approved in India. The vaccine against coronavirus is currently the second most expensive Covid-19 jab in the country.

"It has completed 10 lakh vaccinations across 80 locations in the country and is on track to complete two crore jabs by September," the statement added.

 

The group, which took three weeks to cross the milestone, said in June it will do 10 lakh vaccinations every week and double that in July.
