MOSCOW, Nov 21 (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has been revaccinated against COVID-19, Russian news agencies quoted him as saying on Sunday.

Putin said in June 2021 that he had been vaccinated with the Sputnik V vaccine.

“Today, on your recommendation and that of your colleagues, I received a new vaccination, Sputnik Light. This is called revaccination,” Putin said during a meeting with the deputy director of the Gamaleya Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, which said both developed vaccines.
