Dr. Sanjay Gupta: “Of course I wouldn’t take” Russian vaccine

Russian President Vladimir Putin says Russia has approved a “world-first” Covid-19 vaccine, but experts are skeptical about safety and effectiveness.

“We have no data on this,” CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta said on “New Day.”

Gupta said he would not feel comfortable taking the vaccine, dubbed Sputnik-V, because of the lack of information about it.

Gupta said it reminds him of when Russia said it was developing an Ebola vaccine, yet he never saw any phase three data at that time.

“This is starting to sound very familiar to previous sort of vaccine campaigns out of Russia,” he said. “… Of course I wouldn’t take this. I know nothing about this vaccine.”
