The Sputnik V nasal coronavirus vaccine is painless and has fewer side effects. Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, said that this drug can be used simultaneously with the one-component Sputnik Light.

"We often do it at the same time, there is no harm to the body from this", - said the doctor in an interview with RIA Novosti.

The nasal vaccine is aimed at creating an additional barrier in the form of immunity in the upper respiratory tract, explained the deputy head of the center Denis Logunov.

A nasal vaccine against COVID-19 was developed by scientists at the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology. This spring, the drug was patented. Clinical trials of this drug are now being completed. The director of the center, Alexander Gintsburg, said that during the tests , no side effects were found from the use of the nasal vaccine. Note that President Vladimir Putin was inoculated with this drug.
