In Russia, where Corona virus cases are increasing day by day, there is now a shortage of vaccines.
While health officials in the country stated that the number of cases recorded the highest increase since January, it was announced that vaccination practices were suspended in three regions due to the shortage of vaccines.
While it was announced that vaccination applications were suspended due to the famine in Ufa and Khabarovsk regions, today the Udmurtia federal region announced that vaccination procedures were postponed until Monday.
It has been stated that there may be a shortage of vaccines in many regions, especially in the capital Moscow, in Russia, where the increasing Delta variant in the country has increased the number of cases.
