San Marino finally gets vaccines, but goes with Sputnik V

Russian vaccine Sputnik V doses are stored in San Marino, Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021. The Republic of San Marino, a city state surrounded by Italy, is welcoming the arrival of the first 7,500 Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccines after its plans to get its doses from Italy got delayed. A pink and yellow truck escorted by police cars brought the vaccines across the frontier into San Marino on Tuesday. Eventually, officials said the Russian doses will be enough to vaccinate some 15% of the microstate’s population of around 33,800.
