Russian President Vladimir Putin defended his decision to take the vaccination away from cameras last Tuesday.
In an interview with Russian state television, Putin said today, Sunday, that he did not want to “imitate” those who had taken the vaccination publicly, and that such vaccination campaigns could easily be falsified, as it is possible to take a vitamin injection and claim that it is a vaccine injection.
And Putin explained that his body temperature did not rise after the vaccination, but he felt slight weakness the next day, and later he felt slight pain in the place of the injection.
Putin called on his citizens to take the Corona vaccination and said: “Whoever wants to feel safe and not to get sick or to face serious repercussions after being infected” should take the vaccination.
According to Putin’s statements, the number of people who received the two doses of the vaccine in his country reached 4.3 million people, or about 3% of the country’s total population (146 million people).
And Putin did not disclose which of the three Russian vaccines he had taken, and said, “Only my doctor knows about this.”
It is noteworthy that Russia has two anti-Corona vaccines, namely (EpiVac Corona) and (CoffeeVac), which appeared a month ago, in addition to the internationally recognized vaccine (Sputnik V).
Today, the Russian authorities announced about 9,000 new cases of corona, and this daily rate exceeded 20,000 cases at the end of last year.
