Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination in Saint Petersburg

MOSCOW (Reuters) -Russia has administered COVID-19 vaccines to 38.9 million people, about 27% of its population, health minister Mikhail Murashko said on Thursday.

He did not say whether the figure referred to those who have received at least one dose or those who were fully inoculated. Last month, the government said 33.6 million people had received at least one dose and 22.6 million both doses.

Murashko also said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin that Russia had made a total of 53 million vaccine doses available to the public and the COVID-19 situation in the country was stabilising.
