An application for the registration of the anti-COVID vaccine EpiVacCorona-N has been submitted to the Russian Health Ministry for registration, as follows from a post uploaded to the state register of medicines.
Earlier, the CEO of the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vector, Rinat Maksyutov, said there were no fundamental distinctions between EpiVacCorona-N and the previous version EpiVacCorona.
EpiVacCorona, developed at the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vector, was a second vaccine to have been registered in Russia. The registration certificate was issued on October 14, 2020. About a month later the vaccine’s developers were given permission to conduct post-registration research in different groups of patients, including elderly people.
