VIENNA (Sputnik) – Austria could register Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V on the national level if the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) approval process drags on, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said Wednesday.
All procedures in the EMA take a very long time, which is why Europe lags behind the UK and the US in terms of vaccination, he noted.
Kurz said that he strongly supported the purchase of Sputnik V and hopes that Austria will be able to do so.
“I really hope that we will be able to acquire this vaccine [Sputnik V], as well as use it. This is not only my decision, but I strongly support it,” the chancellor concluded.
