Russia President Vladimir Putin will be vaccinated in private on Tuesday evening, the Kremlin has announced. Is it AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson or Pfizer?
The country once announced late last year that it was producing its own vaccines, and it is not clear if Mr Putin has decided to choose to receive jabs from products outside of Russia. Many people believe that could be the cause of private vaccination.
Other world leaders who have received Covid-19 Vaccine include US President Joe Biden, Pope Francis and Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and President Muhammadu Buhari.
But unlike many others who were vaccinated in public — Biden was shown on TV being given the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, while Ukraine’s Volodomyr Zelensky even took off his shirt for the jab — Putin will do so behind closed doors.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov maintained that the 68-year-old Russian leader, just doesn’t want to get vaccinated in public. Although he admitted that the three home made vaccines are highly effective.
