On the morning of this Tuesday, December 29, the Executive Vice President of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, reported that the Venezuelan government has just signed a contract with Russia to begin massively, and without discrimination, administering the Sputnik-V COVID-19 vaccine.

The immunization against the coronavirus pandemic will benefit 10 million people in its first phase, the high-ranking Venezuelan official said from Caracas.

“The people of Venezuela have the right to receive this vaccine and have the resources to start the process,” said Rodríguez during a meeting with the Russian ambassador.

Last Sunday, December 27, the vice president said that the head of state, Nicolás Maduro, continues to take steps to unlock resources destined for fighting the pandemic in the country.
