The ŠÚKL has objections to vaccination with the Sputnik V vaccine, confirmed a source close to the institute, for the Sme daily.
The Russian vaccine against Covid-19 was not approved by the European Medicines Agency. People interested in receiving this vaccine would have to sign a document claiming they are aware it is not registered in the EU.
A month has passed since the first delivery of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine and Slovakia has received 200,000 doses. The vaccines that have been delivered are being processed by Imuna Pharm, a company in Šarišské Michaľany in eastern Slovakia. Another 200,000 vaccines that should have been delivered in March, have not arrived. The Ministry has not explained the missing supply.
