Registration for vaccination with the unregistered Russian vaccine Sputnik V has been launched.

Those interested in receiving the jab should submit an application form via the website.

After submitting the basic data, the system will ask the applicants whether they are interested in a vaccine registered by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or an unregistered vaccine Sputnik V.

The vaccine can be administered to people aged 18-60. The first person is expected to receive the Sputnik V jab on June 7. Health Minister Vladimír Lengvarský (OĽaNO) assumes that about 80,000 people will be vaccinated with the Russian vaccine. Currently, Slovakia has doses available for 100,000 people.

Sputnik V will be administered in eight towns across Slovakia, one in each Slovak region.

Lengvarský emphasised that after the digital green passes are launched, the European Union will accept only vaccines registered by the EMA.

“Sputnik will limit possibilities to travel,” he said at the talk show broadcast by TV Markíza.
