SputnikV to be available in 9 more cities across India

Being a limited pilot phase presently, registration on CoWIN is not open yet to members of the public. This will become open at the time of our commercial launch.

Scaling up its vaccination drive, the local partner of SputnikV in a statement said, “The limited pilot soft launch of the Sputnik V vaccine in India that was initiated by Dr Reddy’s in Hyderabad on May 14 has now been successfully scaled up to other cities such as Visakhapatnam, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Baddi, Chennai, Miryalaguda and Kolhapur, with more cities to follow in the next few days.”

Being a limited pilot phase presently, registration on CoWIN is not open yet to members of the public. This will become open at the time of our commercial launch.

“This pilot phase has allowed us to test our cold storage arrangements of -18 degree C temperature in these cities, CoWIN integration, track-and-trace and other logistical arrangements ahead of our commercial launch,” the local partner said.

The partner also said, “The limited pilot phase is currently in its final leg as we gear up to ensure a smooth commercial launch. Adequate numbers of cold chain units are being deployed, and the last mile cold chain arrangement is being validated at every partner hospital to ensure seamless storage and handling of the vaccine. All necessary supply arrangements are being executed to ensure the availability of both dose components in the right quantity and at the right time at partner hospitals.”

It was further said that once the pilot phase is completed, Dr Reddy’s will announce the commercial launch of Sputnik V.

“We will continue to issue updates on a regular basis on the commercial launch and important developments related to the Sputnik V vaccine in India, including the date of commercial launch, supply arrangements and partnerships in various parts of the country. We thank you for your patience and cooperation,” said the partner.
