Russia has found that its second COVID-19 vaccine developed by the Vector Institute, is 100% effective. The Tass news agency reports that the perfect score is based on the results of clinical trials.

US and European regulators approved the Pfizer/BioNTech jabs while the UK has also given the green light to the AstraZeneca inoculation.
