Abstract

Sputnik V was the world's first vaccine against the new coronavirus to be registered by a world health entity. The Russian immunizing agent is a vaccine based on adenovirus, which worries some international authorities due to the possibility of an interaction between the vaccine vector and the immune system of those vaccinated. Even after the publication of the results of phase 3 of the vaccine studies, there are several discussions about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine, which call into question whether or not the vaccine should be made available around the world.
