Hundreds of Italians are trying to get vaccinated with the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” in the independent state of San Marino, located inside the territory of Italy, reports the New York Times.

At the same time, the state authorities initially counted on an agreement on vaccines with Italy, but it was not implemented, after which the state turned to Russia.

“The only vaccine currently available on the market is Sputnik,” said the country's Health Minister, Roberto Chavista.

According to the publication, at the moment in San Marino, at least one dose of the vaccine received 26% of the population, which is more than twice the average in the European Union.

Sputnik V was approved by the San Marino authorities in February of this year, and the first batch of the vaccine arrived in the country a few days later.
