'How Could This Happen?' Russians Sign Up For Sputnik V COVID-19 Vaccine, Get 'EpiVac' Instead

They were promised the domestically produced Sputnik V, but instead got a drug called EpiVacCorona produced by the Vector research center in the country's Novosibirsk region. Some scientists have questioned the effectiveness of "EpiVac" and people don't understand why they're being deceived over which vaccine they'll get.
