The Russian Minister of Industry and Commerce, Denis Mánturov, has revealed why he chose the Sputnik V vaccine based on human adenoviruses over that based on a monkey adenovirus.
According to the minister, who administered the Sputnik V vaccine before the completion of the phase 3 trials, it does not present adverse effects on the body, apart from mild symptoms.
“I prefer human adenovirus. This method is well known and the formula is available so that all experts can have a clear idea of how the vaccine works and its benefits. That is, there are no adverse effects, except perhaps mild symptoms during first few days. I had some fever at night, maybe for a few hours. The next day, a mild headache, “Mantrov said in an interview with Bloomberg.

For him it was a question of responsibility since he is in charge of the production of vaccines against COVID-19. Mánturov stressed that getting the vaccine helps him protect himself and, on the other hand, protect the people who work with him. He added that his son and 84-year-old mother also made the decision to get vaccinated with Sputnik V.
In early August, the Ministry of Health registry the first vaccine against COVID-19, developed by specialists from the Gamaleya Center with the support of the Russian Fund for Direct Investment. It received the name Sputnik V.
