The first residents of tiny San Marino will get their coronavirus vaccines on Thursday, with Russia stepping in after Italian deliveries failed to arrive.

Moscow this week dispatched 7,500 doses of its Sputnik V jab to the microstate as part of a wider soft-power attempt to expand its influence in Europe by love-bombing struggling countries with medical aid.

San Marino, home to 35,000 residents, sits enclaved within Italy — which has given at least one dose to 4 percent of its population to date — but until Thursday, it had yet to administer a single jab, making it one of the last European countries to start its vaccination campaign.
