Cyprus to Purchase 50,000 Doses of Russia’s Sputnik Vaccine

NICOSIA — Cyprus says it intends to purchase from Russia 50,000 doses of the Sputnik coronavirus vaccine to make up a shortfall in vaccine supply.

Government spokesman Kyriakos Koushos said on Wednesday that Cyprus could purchase more Sputnik vaccine doses if the European Union approves its use relatively quickly.

Koushos said the Cyprus government is in direct contact with Russian authorities about the Sputnik dose purchase, adding that Cyprus could be supplied with significant amounts if the vaccine receives EU approval.

Earlier this week, Cyprus temporarily suspended AstraZeneca vaccine shots until March 18. Scheduled vaccinations with the other EU-approved vaccines – Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna – will carry on without interruption.
