BUENOS AIRES (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 31st July, 2021) A study by the Buenos Aires provincial health ministry has shown that it is safe to combine the Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine with other drugs.

"The Health Ministry of the province of Buenos Aires reports that, according to the preliminary results of the ongoing study, the combination of the Sputnik V vaccine with Sinopharm and AstraZeneca did not show severe side effects," the statement said.
