According to the news of Vietnam state television (VTV), the Vietnamese Ministry of Health applied to Russia for a vaccine request. In the news, information about how many doses Vietnam has ordered and the delivery date of the order was not shared. Some experts say that the vaccine, which received approval in less than two months after it was started on humans, was rushed, so it might not be safe.
