Brazil rejects Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine, citing ‘uncertain’ data – creator says decision is political & driven by US

The maker of Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine believes the US has pressured Brazil into refusing approval of its formula for political reasons. Brazil’s health regulator says there are “inherent risks” and defects with the jab.

The South American country is in desperate need of Covid-19 vaccine doses, and has been one of the hardest-hit nations throughout the pandemic. However, despite requests from Brazilian politicians, regulator Anvisa believes there is a lack of documentation to guarantee its safety, and data about its efficacy is “uncertain.”

After the news broke late on Monday that Brazil would not import Sputnik V, the vaccine maker’s official Twitter account fired back in Portuguese, claiming the delay in approving was “of a political nature” and “nothing to do with access to information or science.” It also cited the 2020 United States Department of Health and Human Services annual report, which stated that Washington sought to prevent Brazil from allowing the Russian vaccine.
