Gunzburg noted that clinical studies of the Sputnik V vaccine, “diluted five times,” on adolescents showed that they produce much more antibodies in their bodies than in adults. This is because children’s immune systems respond better to foreign antigens, Gunzburg said.

As the vice-mayor of Moscow Anastasia Rakova clarified, minors will be injected with the same drug as adults, but in a lower concentration.
