Moscow is prepared for all-out free anti-COVID vaccination, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Rossiya 24 television channel.

“We are ready for full-scale vaccination. We have set up about 300 vaccination centres with all the required equipment and personnel. We have launched an online system allowing people to sign up for vaccination. Everything is ready. We are at the starting line, so to say,” Mr Sobyanin noted.

He also added that vaccination would commence as soon as the centres got sufficient supplies. The companies are already mass-producing batches of the vaccine.

The city has tested the coronavirus vaccine at the request of the Gamaleya National Epidemiology and Microbiology Research Centre. In all, over 20,000 volunteers have been vaccinated. All of them are feeling well, with no serious complications.

The launch of vaccination is a decisive stage in checking the spread of the disease. However, city-level restrictive measures have not become any less important. According to researchers’ findings, 50 percent of Muscovites have developed herd immunity to the virus.

The 2021 draft city budget already allows for funding for free COVID-19 vaccination, ten billion roubles have been allocated for this purpose.

Vaccination is the most effective and safe method of protection against infection. All-out vaccination helped cope with terrible epidemics, including smallpox, measles, tetanus and poliomyelitis.
