Eleven COVID-19 Vaccines Available Globally
According to media reports, there are now eleven COVID-19 vaccines being administered globally. On February 19, 2021, the Russian Federation announced the registration of their 3rd locally-produced COVID-19 vaccine, called CoviVac.
According to the general director of the Chumakov Center, Aydar Ishmukhametov, none of the international companies working on this method of obtaining vaccines has yet released whole virion vaccines against COVID-19. “I am sure that six months later, maybe earlier, all the same, whole-virion vaccines will dominate in the same way as it happened in other types of vaccines, in other developments,” reported Medexpert.ru on February 20, 2021.
Russia's CoviVac is a two-shot vaccination and is recommended for use from 18 to 60 years old.
In the USA, the experimental Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty and the Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are available, says the U.S. CDC.
