Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he took part in the Nasal Sputnik trial, stating that he “did not develop any abnormal symptoms”. On Sunday, Putin received the third dose of the Sputnik Light covid vaccine.
It was the Deputy Director of Research of the National Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology Gamaleya, Denis Logunov who advised Puti to carry out a further second dose with the nasal product, still in an experimental phase, said the Russian President. And it was Logunov himself, the day after our conversation, who completed “the second half of this procedure, that is, to administer the nasal powder”.
“Exactly six months after receiving the vaccine, my protection had dropped and the specialists recommended that I undergo a revaccination procedure, which is what I did a couple of days ago,” Putin recalled at a meeting of government.
As for the nasal vaccine, “Logunov asked me to take a deep breath for a count of three while he sprayed the product in one nostril and then the other. Then I sat for a quarter of an hour and it was all over.” “Today, after completing these two procedures, I have already trained, so I can confirm that everything is going well. We will then see what the result will be in terms of antibodies.”
