MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 21st June, 2021) Russia's EpiVacCorona vaccine against COVID-19 can be used for revaccination as many times as necessary, consumer health protection watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said on Monday, citing the Vector research center that developed the vaccine.
"The composition of the EpiVacCorona vaccine enables its use for revaccination, without any limitation on the number of times.
