The court's decision was explained because the Russian vaccine was not approved in Germany.

Der Spiegel quoted information from the administrative court of the state of Kassel, which rejected the appeal related to the Sputnik V vaccine on Friday (October 1), saying: "German citizens are fully immunized with the Sputnik vaccine. V of Russia will not receive a certificate of vaccination against Covid-19 in Germany.

The petitioner said he was fully vaccinated against Russia, the first dose he received in May in Moscow, and the second dose in July in San Marino. However, when he arrived in Germany, he asked for a certificate of vaccination but was refused, so far this decision has been confirmed by the court.

According to the regulations in force in Germany, a certificate of vaccination against Covid-19 can only be issued if one of the vaccines is listed on the list of the Paul Ehrlich Research Institute, part of the German Ministry of Health. Licensing. However, Sputnik V is not on this list.

Der Spiegel informed, the court noted that European law generally allows the issuance of vaccine certificates on the basis of vaccinations performed in a non-European Union (EU) country. However, this case does not oblige the German authorities to issue vaccination certificates to persons receiving unapproved vaccines in the country.

Recently, according to Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko, Russia's Sputnik V vaccine will be approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO) in the near future.

Murashko made the announcement after meeting with WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in Geneva, Switzerland.

“There are only a few small administrative procedures that need to be resolved,” Mr. Murashko said.

According to Mr. Murashko, existing problems hindering the approval process of the Sputnik V vaccine have been resolved by Russia and WHO.

“Russia's position on the promotion and registration of the Sputnik V vaccine has been heard by WHO. We have completely resolved all the problems,” Murashko added.

“All barriers have been removed. We no longer see an obstacle preventing a Russian vaccine from being approved by the WHO. The Director-General of WHO has confirmed so,” emphasized the Russian Health Minister.

Sputnik V is a vaccine against Covid-19 developed by Russia's Gamalaya National Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology. The Sputnik V vaccine uses virus vector technology, similar to the British AstraZeneca vaccine.
