In a latest development in the importing of Sputnik V vaccine, drug maker Dr Reddy's on Wednesday said it will be importing the vaccine from Russia in this quarter and supplies from Indian manufacturers will commence from next quarter.

As per media reports, “Sputnik V will be imported by RDIF and we expect it to be available in this quarter,” Dr Reddy’s Lab said.

The initial batches of Sputnik V, however, will be imported from Russia, whose Gamaleya Research Institute developed this vaccine. Dr Reddy’s Lab confirmed that the vaccine doses will be imported from Russia for the time being.

Besides, Dr Reddy's Laboratories Ltd is in talks with the government on fixing the price of COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V and there may be some clarity on the pricing in a few days, Managing Director G.V. Prasad said at a virtual press conference today. The vaccine is currently sold at $10 in the markets where it has secured regulatory approval. India is paying up to 150 rupees per dose for the Covaxin and Covishield vaccines, which have been approved.
