Putin gets jabbed

Russian President Vladimir Putin received his first dose of a coronavirus vaccine on March 23, his spokesman said as Russia looks to boost a vaccination campaign that is faltering despite having produced three home-grown jabs.

Putin thus joined other world leaders who have received jabs including US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Pope Francis and Britain’s Queen Elizabeth.

But unlike many others who were vaccinated in public, Putin’s vaccination took place in private and Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov did not specify which jab was administered.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron said that his country should be giving vaccines “morning, noon and evening,” as his government announced that 35 new mass inoculation centers would open soon.”

We’re going to change pace from April,” he said, adding that there should be “no weekend and days off when it comes to vaccinations.”
