Some Russians Wary of Russia’s COVID-19 Vaccine

Health Editor’s Note: Russia said on Wednesday that the first group of vaccines will be available in two weeks and say any safety concerns for the vaccine are ‘groundless.’  When questioned, some citizens of Moscow say they will be too scared to get the vaccine, but it also appears that as in the U.S., there are vaccine skeptics (Russian antivaxxers) would would do not get vaccines for any disease. It seems that the anti-vaccine wackos in the U.S. have company as some Russians also believe that some type of micro-chip will be implanted with the vaccination process. 

Some Russians also question the motives for moving this vaccine past the third phase of trial and going directly to vaccine programs. They think safety measures may be compromised in Russia’s efforts to leap ahead and offer the vaccine before the final phase of clinical testing. Some teachers, think they will be forced to get the vaccine. 

The Moscow-based Association of Clinical Trials Organizations (ACTO), which is a trade body which represents the world’s top drug makers in Russia, has urged the postponement of giving the vaccine until the final trial (phase 3) is completed.

VT sincerely wishes that the Russian COVID-19 vaccine will be both effective and safe…Carol

  1. There seems to be an ongoing public relations campaign replete with sarcasm — even sneering in the west against the new Russian vaccine. It seems they so want it to fail or to have complications. I do not think the Russians would put out a vaccine so early unless there was a much bigger upside than a downside. If the vaccine did not work or had problems it would be a big blow and a humiliation to Russian science and they take their science very seriously. That being said, I have a layperson’s view of this and I don’t have the specialized knowledge to actually access the vaccine from a scientific/technical point of view.

    • Everyone, VT hopes that the Russian vaccination for COVID-19 is effective and safe. Just because Russia did not complete Phase 3 trials before okaying use for the public does not mean that the vaccine is going to harm people. What would have been better for the world is if ALL countries had pooled their information, tests, research, etc. and have come up with a vaccine that will stop this wildfire of COVID-19 and will let the world move forward without loosing more people to coronavirus.
