Venezuelan President Maduro gets first shot of Russia’s Sputnik-V vaccine
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is the latest world leader to take his first dose of Russias Sputnik-V coronavirus vaccine. The vaccine, once maligned by the Western media, is gaining popularity in Europe too.
A masked Maduro took his jab in a video shared by TeleSUR on Saturday, with the network saying that Maduro received his shot after healthcare workers in the beleaguered Latin American country.

With Venezuela’s fight against Covid-19 hampered by US sanctions, a shipment of 100,000 doses of Sputnik-V arrived in Caracas from Moscow last month, to be immediately given to medical and healthcare workers.
Though Maduro’s options for sourcing vaccines elsewhere are limited, he is not the first world leader to take the Russian-made vaccine. Argentinian President Alberto Fernández personally received a dose in January, days after Italy’s ambassador in Moscow took his dose of Sputnik-V.
