Dr Reddy's and Apollo Hospitals Announce Sputnik V COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Apollo Hospitals and Dr Reddy's Laboratories has stated that they are collaborating to initiate a vaccination program against coronavirus with Russia's Covid-19 vaccine Sputnik V. Russia's most anticipated Covid-19 vaccine Sputnik V has arrived to India and the vaccination program will kick start tomorrow i.e., on 18th of May in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam at Apollo facilities.

The vaccinations would follow the SOPs as recommended by the Centre including registration on CoWIN. This pilot phase will allow Dr. Reddy's and Apollo to test the arrangements and cold chain logistics and prepare for the launch of this program. With the opening up of the vaccination program, the healthcare major has intensified efforts to accelerate the rate of vaccination in India.

The Sputnik V vaccines for the pilot programme would be supplied by Dr Reddy's from the first batch of 1.5 lakh doses imported so far. After Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, the pilot programme will be extended to Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kolkata, and Pune. Sputnik V is set to be rolled out this week after the second batch of the shots arrived in India yesterday.
