Sputnik V - Russia is fifth on the list of vaccine makers

When it comes to Covid-19 vaccines, a lot of attention seems to have centered on the ones being made in the West. So it may come as a surprise that Russia is fifth on the list of vaccine makers with the most doses under contract through pre-purchase agreements, according to Bloombergs Covid-19 Vaccine Tracker. The shot whimsically named Sputnik V and developed by the Gamaleya institute is just behind GlaxoSmithKline Plc and Sanofis candidate in the rankings and ahead of the shots developed by Moderna Inc. and Johnson & Johnson. This is notable for a vaccine that has yet to be featured in any peer-reviewed scientific journal.
