The immunity developed after Russian vaccines currently protects from all strains of coronavirus, Sputnik reports, citing Anna Popova, head of Rospotrebnadzor.

“The immunity developed after Russian vaccines protects today from all known variants and mutations,” Popova told the Rossiya 24 broadcaster.

Immunity after vaccination against coronavirus lasts 10-12 months, it is quite stable, she added.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Russia has taken the lead in the race to develop a vaccine, creating three different jabs: Sputnik V, developed by Moscow’s Gamaleya Institute; EpiVacCorona by the Siberian research center Vector; and the Chumakov Research Institute’s CoviVac.
