Austria ready to purchase Sputnik V, Sebastian Kurz says

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said that negotiations with Russia on the purchase of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine were finished.

Sputnik V would be an additional booster [for the vaccination campaign in Austria] with a volume of 1 million doses. The de facto contract negotiations have come to an end. This means that purchase for Austria is possible," he said at a meeting with reporters in Vienna on Saturday.

This week Kurz announced plans to register Sputnik V at the national level, to purchase and use the drug to speed up the vaccination process in the country. "I strongly support this," the Chancellor emphasized.
