Pfizer is considering filing an application to register its COVID vaccine in Russia, the pharma company’s press service told TASS.


We continue to cooperate with the international organizations and governments around the world that will distribute the candidate vaccine, in order to provide prompt access for the categories of people who need it the most in accordance with the healthcare authorities’ recommendations once the regulatory permissions in those countries are obtained. Pfizer looks into the option to file an application to register the COVID-19 candidate vaccine in the Russian Federation, the company said.

North Macedonia will receive 800,000 doses of coronavirus vaccine in 2021 as Pfizer approved the shipment earlier.

NEWS.ru earlier reported that an elderly Israeli man died on Dec. 28 of a heart attack after receiving the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.
