St. Petersburg has a record for vaccination against coronavirus. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the city health committee.

Earlier it was reported that in St. Petersburg the COVID-19 vaccine “KoviVac” ended. Its deliveries are not expected in the near future. As the deputy chairman of the city health committee Andrei Sarana said, this drug is produced at one plant, this factor is associated with a shortage of vaccines.

On November 10, a decree on compulsory vaccinations for senior citizens of St. Petersburg was issued. It was signed by the chief sanitary doctor of the city, Natalia Bashketova. The first component of the vaccine will need to be administered to these populations by December 15, the second – by January 15, 2022. Later that day, the document was approved by the administration of St. Petersburg.
