Russian President Vladimir Putin says he will get a coronavirus vaccine shot tomorrow, months after widespread vaccination started in the country.

Speaking at a meeting with government officials, Putin says he will get his shot “tomorrow,” without specifying which vaccine out of three approved for use in Russia he will take.

According to the Russian president, over 6 million people in Russia have already received at least one shot, and over 4 million have gotten both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Widespread vaccination with the domestically developed Sputnik V shot started in Russia in December, but has so far been going slowly compared to many other countries.
