Russia has started its Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccination programme in the capital Moscow.
Thousands of people have signed up to receive Sputnik V injections, with priority going to teachers, doctors and social workers.
The vaccine’s Russian developers say it is 95 percent effective and has no significant side effects - but the speed of the rollout has concerned some health experts who fear it has not had enough tests.
