MOSCOW (Reuters) – Several Russian regions have started vaccinating animals against COVID-19 at veterinary clinics, the RIA news agency cited Russia’s agricultural safety watchdog as saying on Wednesday.

Russia said in March it had registered the world’s first vaccine for animals against COVID-19 after tests showed it generated antibodies against the coronavirus in dogs, cats, foxes and mink.
