June 5

Vaccination against coronavirus infection has begun in Moscow universities, Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Moscow Mayor for Social Development, said.

"We really want to make it convenient and comfortable for as many people as possible to get vaccination against coronavirus infection. To do this, we regularly update the list of vaccination points, and mobile teams vaccinate dwellers in public spaces. We see demand among universities students who would like to be vaccinated, but have not yet been vaccinated because of being busy. Therefore, we decided to organize vaccination against COVID-19 directly on the Moscow universities sites," the vice-mayor said.

At the State University of Management, vaccination has already begun.

Also, the onsite vaccination will be held at the Moscow State University of Technology and Management, the ‘MEI’ National Research University, the Russian State University of Physical Culture, Sports, Youth and Tourism, the Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, the Pirogov Medical University, the Russian Customs Academy, the Russian New University and the International Law Institute.
