What is the difference between the two vaccines?
This question needs to be clarified, as the “Sputnik V” vaccine is based on the vector technology of adenoviruses, and consists of two doses. Vectors are carriers that can deliver genetic material from another virus to a cell. The genetic material of the virus that causes the infection is removed, while a gene that encodes a protein from another virus is inserted, and in the current case this code is from the Corona virus, and the protein with sharp protrusions protruding from its surface is called “spike protein”. This new element is safe for the body, but it helps the immune system in responding and producing antibodies that protect the body, according to the official site of the vaccine .
The first dose of Sputnik V uses a virus vector carrying number 26 for the human adenovirus (Ad26). The second dose uses a Russian virus vector number 5 for the human adenovirus (Ad5).
Sputnik Light is the first dose of Sputnik V, that is, it uses the virus vector number 26 of the human adenovirus.

The effectiveness was calculated based on data from Russians who received only one injection as part of the civilian mass vaccination program, and did not receive a second injection for any reason between December 5, 2020, and April 15, 2021.
The results showed that a single dose of Sputnik Light could lead to the development of IgG antibodies specific to an antigen in 96.9% of individuals after 28 days of administration.
Is Sputnik Light effective against new strains of Corona?
Sputnik Light is effective against all new strains of Corona virus, according to the results of laboratory studies of the Aesthetic National Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology Research, and according to the official statement .
How safe is Sputnik Lite?
According to the official website of the vaccine, Sputnik Lite has shown a high safety record for everyone who has been immunized with the drug, including those who have previous immunity to the emerging corona virus.

What are the storage requirements?

What is the importance of Sputnik Lite?
Sputnik Lite may help make vaccine supplies more available in countries where the virus is spreading more and more.
And the Russian authorities allowed the export of the new vaccine. Among the potential uses of this vaccine is to send it to countries that are experiencing the brunt of severe outbreaks and need to contain the matter quickly.
Is Sputnik Lite a substitute for Sputnik in?
According to Russia Today, quoting the Russian Ministry of Health, the Sputnik Lite vaccine is not a substitute for “Sputnik V”, as it is intended to achieve other goals.
The ministry indicated that the “Sputnik V” vaccine constitutes the strongest immunity in people, but Sputnik Light may be used to quickly establish social immunity in inappropriate epidemiological conditions.
For his part, Alexander Ginsberg, Director of the Jamalia Institute for Epidemiological and Microbiology Research said, “Sputnik Light will help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus through faster immunization of large groups of the population, as well as maintain high immunity in people infected with the Coronavirus. Sputnik Lite is a good tool for both vaccination. “Initial vaccination and revaccination, and to increase the effectiveness when combined with other vaccines.”
Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, commented, “The Sputnik Lite vaccine reduces the likelihood of developing severe cases of the disease that lead to hospitalization significantly with a single injection. The application system allows one component to vaccinate a large number of people in a short time, which is important. Especially during the acute phase of the spread of foci of Coronavirus infection among the population, and to quickly achieve the population’s immunity.The characteristics of the vaccine provide easy storage and logistics, and at the same time the price of the Sputnik Lite vaccine is less than 10 dollars.
He said, “(Sputnik V) remains a two-component (two-dose) tool for vaccination in Russia, and Sputnik Lite will be exported with one component (one dose) to our foreign partners, and it will tangibly help accelerate vaccination in a number of countries in the context of the ongoing battle against the Corona virus and its new strains. “.
