MEDIA-Russian plant to produce first AstraZeneca vaccine batches in June - RBC

Wed, 12th May 2021 18:39

May 12 (Reuters) -

* Russian pharmaceutical firm R-Pharm will in June start
producing
the first doses in Russia of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by
AstraZeneca and Oxford University, RBC magazine reported
on Wednesday, citing the company's director Vasiliy Ignatiev.

* It will produce a few hundred thousand doses a month, RBC
cited
Ignatiev as saying.

* The company will be making doses exclusively for export,
not for
use in Russia, RBC reported. It will handle exports together
with the Russian Direct Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth
fund responsible for marketing the Russian-made Sputnik V
vaccine abroad.
