US film director Oliver Stone said he has received an initial jab of Russia's coronavirus vaccine, APA reports citing Euronews.

Stone, 74, told Russian state television in remarks broadcast late Monday that he had received the first of two required shots of Sputnik V vaccine a few days ago and will return later to receive another jab.

He said he heard "good things" about the Russian vaccine, adding that he wondered why it's being ignored in the West.

Stone received Sputnik V even though it is currently only offered to Russians aged between 18 and 60 in the ongoing immunization effort.
