Fifteen thousand doses of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccines will arrive in Sri Lanka on May 4, and it will be administered to the public in the Western Province immediately, a senior government source told yesterday.

Although officials earlier said 200,000 doses would arrive by the end of April, Russia will send further doses only after these 15,000 are administered.
