MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia will launch the one-dose “Sputnik-Light” version of its coronavirus vaccine in February, the vaccine’s producers said on Twitter on Friday.

Russia has described “Sputnik-Light”, which could be used for export, as a possible temporary solution to help countries with high infection rates make their vaccine supplies go further.
