State Secretary at the Serbian Ministry of Health Mirsad Djerlek said on Feb. 10 that it was realistic to expect that Serbia would start producing the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year.

"Vaccine production would be carried out in two phases - filling and packaging the vaccine," Djerlek told Prva TV, adding that initially the mixture would be delivered from Russia and packaged in Serbia.

Djerlek pointed out that Serbia already had a packing machine, which the Health Ministry purchased in 2016, and that all that was left to do was procure a machine for the packaging, i.e. vials and ampoules.

"It is very difficult to get a vaccine on the world market, so investing in vaccines is the most important investment in 2021," Djerlek underlined.
