The Gamelaya Institute in Moscow announced the end of the second phase of its vaccine and the obvious approval of safe human consumption. Alexander Ginsburg, director of the institution, said that the third phase of the drug will start in mid-August this year and will be delivered to a small population in Russia.

The second phase of testing Russian care began on June 18 with 18 volunteers. Nine of them received a single dose of the vaccine and the rest received an additional dose of the drug. After the experiment, it was confirmed that no subject had any side effects when using the vaccine.

“Volunteers have developed an immune response to the coronavirus vaccine”, said Sergey Shoigú, Russian Defense Minister.

Later, on June 23, the drug was given to a new group of 20 volunteers in a military hospital.

Phase III of the Russian vaccine

The drug developed by the Gamelaya Institute will be the third in the world to reach the final stage of experimentation. “I hope that between August 14th and August 15th, the small amount of vaccine that we can produce will go on public transport.”, Alexander Ginsburg said according to the Russian portal RIA. The Information Agency has also mandated that each person to whom the vaccine is delivered be monitored to confirm the effectiveness of the product.

In China, the pharmaceutical company Sinopharm already has a formula that is in the final line of observation. Similarly, a drug developed jointly by Oxford University and pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca in the UK is in the final stages.

Two new vaccines from the pharmaceutical companies Sinovac Biotech in China and Moderna in the USA are expected to be added to the list.
