Side effects seen in volunteers were found on the milder side. These are what medical experts call the ‘reiogenic’ effect post administration of a vaccine, which causes mild discomfort. Some of the symptoms that have been observed include fever, chills, muscle aches and sore throat.
Russian officials tracking the study also noted that further supplements would help detect more observations. While 300 of the 40,000 selected patients have been successfully injected, the second pill will be given after 21 days when the first pill is provided.
It should be noted that the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine trials, considered top contenders in the global vaccine race, were halted in the midst of Phase III trials following ‘neurological’ complications recorded by a volunteer.
Russia, which plans to introduce mass vaccination in the country from next year, is set to publish observatory data from Phase III trials by late October or November. The vaccine named Sputnik V has been linked to controversies from the beginning.
