Hemantha Herath, Media Spokesman for the Ministry of Health says that it is not a problem of the government or the Ministry of Health that a large number of people who received the first dose of the Sputnik V covid vaccine have not yet received the second dose.
Question: Many people who have taken the first dose of the Sputnik vaccine have a problem with the second dose?
Receiving every vaccine is a matter of great uncertainty beyond our control. So every time we gave this vaccine, we informed the groups about it. This uncertainty is not a problem of the government or the Ministry of Health.
The amount of the 2nd dose vaccines we have is very limited. We have only two stocks of fifteen thousand doses. That’s why we said at the outset that the first vaccine would provide the required immunity and that they would give the 2nd dose as soon as they are received “
Dr. Hemantha Herath stated this addressing a media briefing held at the Ministry of Health yesterday (04).
