TEHRAN, Nov. 03 (MNA) – The Iranian health ministry said Wednesday that more than 90 million of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in Iran so far.

Meanwhile, the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Moscow said on Wednesday a new consignment of Russian-made vaccine "Sputnik V" which contains 777,600 doses of the vaccine to be sent to Tehran, was delivered to the embassy by the Russian Federation officials.

This will the 13th shipment of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine to be sent to Iran. The 12th consignment was dispatched to Tehran on October 13.
