Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine remains one of the most infrequent coronavirus vaccines. Although Minister of Health Jan Blatný has previously denied that the vaccine reached the Czech Republic before it was approved by the drug agency, President Miloš Zeman obviously has a different view. The castle is trying to give the Czechia priority in the race for this vaccine.
The iDNES.cz editorial staff turned to Presidential office with a question whether he is currently finding out or trying to get the Russian vaccine to the Czech Republic in preference to other countries.
“We are taking steps, but I will not provide any details, in the interest of the whole matter,” said Jiří Ovčáček, a spokesman for the president, when asked.
It is no secret that President Miloš Zeman has previously stated that he would welcome vaccination with this vaccine in the Czech Republic. “I know that the already quoted Professor Prymula recommended Sputnik. I know that Sputnik is already, I guess, vaccinated in Hungary, and I have nothing against it, if the experts decide to do so, this vaccine will be used in our country as well, “he said in an interview with Frekvenci 1.
