Slovakia may be the next state to defy the EU regarding authorization of the Sputnik V vaccine before EU approval.
“It is timely for the government to start talks with the Russian side about supplies of Sputnik V,” Prime Minister Igor Matovic said on Facebook. “The government will discuss this on Thursday morning…I am in favor. It is a great vaccine with great efficiency. So far in the EU, it is only being used by Hungary and I do not see a reason why we should not use it as well”.
Again, we are not debating the pros or cons of any vaccine, but the natural right for national governments to do what it thinks is best for its citizens.
