MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) has agreed to ship 50 million doses of Russia's first vaccine, Sputnik V, to the Brazilian state of Bahia, the fund said Friday.
Deliveries of the vaccine to Brazil are expected to begin in November, “subject to approval from Brazilian government regulators, which will take into account the results of a post-marketing vaccine study,” RDIF said.
“The agreement will also allow in the future to supply the vaccine throughout Brazil,” the statement said.
Earlier this week, RDIF announced plans to ship 32 million doses of the vaccine to Mexico.
