The campaign will use the #SputnikV hashtag.

During the campaign, the Gamaleya Center scientists will tell the story behind the technology and creation of the Sputnik V vaccine, while people who received the Sputnik V inoculation will share their personal experiences and thoughts.

Sputnik V social media channels will also become the main platform for exclusive delivery of major news about the vaccine, publication of the latest data on the number of people vaccinated, and vaccine production data. The channels will also carry live events with major announcements and expert commentaries. The information about Sputnik V will be available on the following platforms:

Sputnik V is the world’s first registered vaccine based on a well-studied human adenoviral vector-based platform. It currently ranks among top-10 candidate vaccines approaching the end of clinical trials and the start of mass production on the World Trade Organization’s (WHO) list. Russia submitted applications to the WHO for accelerated registration and prequalification of Sputnik V.

The ongoing Sputnik V post-registration clinical trial in Russia involves 40,000 volunteers. Clinical trials of Sputnik V have been announced in the UAE, India, Venezuela, and Belarus

Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, commented: “Our social media campaign will focus on providing up-to-date information about our vaccine effort for global audience but beyond that, it also aims to give mankind hope that they will soon be able to break free from the COVID-19 pandemic and go back to normal life without lockdowns and facemasks. In this life, people will again be able to meet friends, go out to museums, theaters, and restaurants as well as travel to different countries. Businesses will again stay open providing jobs that guarantee wellbeing for employees and their families. We invite all people in different countries to join our campaign and support our Sputnik V vaccine effort”.
