In this handout photo released by Russian Direct Investment Fund, a medical worker holds a phial of Russian Sputnik-Light one-dose vaccine against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) developed by the Gamaleya Scientific Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology during clinical trials, in Moscow, Russia. Sputnik-Light is based on the same special structures (carrier vectors) as in two-dose Russian Gam-COVID-VAK (trademark "Sputnik V") vaccine. Russia has described Sputnik-Light, which could be used for export, as a possible temporary solution to help countries with high infection rates make their vaccine supplies go further.
