Earlier it was reported that in the Kaluga region, a nurse injected patients with saline instead of the coronavirus vaccine, compensating for the shortage of the drug. A married couple were vaccinated with the KoviVac vaccine, which is in high demand in Russia. However, the nurse was afraid to tell the patients about this, since the man who was vaccinated was the son of a surgeon. Later, the patients were given the second component, which was intended for the deputy chief physician and head nurse.
