Five thousand people have already signed up to get the COVID-19 jab, Sergei Sobyanin said.

“The challenging process to get the COVID vaccine out has been launched. Five thousand people – teachers, doctors and social workers, those who risk their lives and health more than others right now – signed up over the first five hours,” the Moscow Mayor wrote in his blog.

Beginning on 4 December, Moscow residents can make appointments online to get the coronavirus vaccine. For now, it will be available only to those who come into contact with large numbers of people in their line of work: healthcare workers and teachers, as well as staff of the city’s social services.

The vaccination campaign will be carried out through a network of 70 stations set up at the city’s outpatient clinics, and working from 8 am until 8 pm every day with appointment bookings released online for the next two weeks.

To get an appointment for a coronavirus vaccine, go to mos.ru, choose “Вакцинация от COVID-19” in the dropdown menu “Запись к врачу.”

When arriving at the vaccination station, make sure to have your passport, mandatory health insurance policy and a document, for example an employer’s certificate, to prove that you belong to one of the professions or organisations entitled to the vaccine.

Vaccination will be open to people between 18 and 60 years old, registered with one of the city’s outpatient clinics. People over 60 years old, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women will not be able to get the vaccine. The vaccine will be provided to people that do not suffer from any chronic conditions or a cold when getting the vaccine and two weeks prior to that. There should also be a window of at least 30 days since getting any other vaccine, for example a flu jab.

Sputnik V is a two-dose vaccine, with the second shot administered 21 days after the patient gets the first one. Signing up for the first shot will be enough, since the doctor at the clinic will take care of signing the patient up for the second dose. Patients will receive an SMS-alert 24 hours before the appointed time.

The vaccination procedure takes about an hour, including about 10 minutes for an examination by the doctor, and another 15 minutes to prepare the vaccine that is stored in a frozen state. After the shot, patients will be asked to stay at the clinic in order to undergo a post-vaccination examination 30 minutes after the shot.

The list of categories of people entitled to receive the jab will be expanded as healthcare institutions receive more stocks of the vaccine. In the future, it will be available to all Moscow residents.
