Moscow Began Mass Vaccination Against Coronavirus

On Saturday, Moscow began mass vaccination against coronavirus with its indigenous vaccine Sputnik V via 70 clinics, it is Russia’s first mass vaccination against the disease, the city’s coronavirus task force said.

The task force said the vaccine would first be made available to doctors and other medical workers, teachers and social workers because they ran the highest risk of exposure to the disease.

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote on his personal website: “Over the first five hours, 5,000 people signed up for the jab – teachers, doctors, social workers, those who are today risking their health and lives the most.”

Moscow, the epicentre of Russia’s coronavirus outbreak, registered 7,993 new cases overnight, up from 6,868 a day before and well above the daily tallies of around 700 seen in early September.

The age for those receiving shots is capped at 60. People with certain underlying health conditions, pregnant women and those who have had a respiratory illness for the past two weeks are barred from vaccination.
