Kazakhstan officials have registered the Sputnik V vaccine produced by the Karaganda Pharmaceutical Complex, the government’s interagency commission on coronavirus response said on Monday, APA reports citing TASS.

"The Karaganda Pharmaceutical Complex has concluded the registration procedure of the Gam-COVID-Vac coronavirus vaccine (Sputnik V) on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan," the message says.

Kazakhstan began to vaccinate its population against COVID-19 on February 1 with Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine. Starting February 15, Kazakhstan plans to use the Sputnik V vaccine produced locally. In the second quarter of 2021, the government also plans to start vaccination with Kazakh-developed COVID-19 vaccine QazCovid-In, which is currently undergoing the third stage of clinical trials.
