At the end of last week, vaccination with the first component was completed in the Salaris and L-153 shopping centers. Now those who previously received the first component of the drug at these points come there for the second vaccination, ”she said.

On-site coronavirus vaccination teams have been working in Moscow since January 18. They are received at GUM, the Helikon-Opera Theater, the Depo food mall, at the My Documents flagship offices (at the Afimall City shopping and entertainment center in the Central Administrative District and at the Columbus shopping center in the South Administrative District), as well as shopping centers “Kaleidoscope”, “Kaluzhsky”, “Shchelkovsky” and “Water”.
Compliance with all sanitary and epidemiological requirements is ensured in the workplaces of the mobile teams. Vaccinations are carried out by employees of city polyclinics. Patients undergo a preliminary examination by a doctor, and the state of health of the townspeople is monitored within half an hour after the administration of the vaccine.
The field teams carry out vaccinations free of charge and without an appointment. You need to take your passport and compulsory medical insurance policy with you. The whole procedure takes about 40 minutes: 10-15 minutes are required for a medical examination and the vaccination itself, then the patient’s well-being is monitored for another 30 minutes. On the same day, the doctor sets the date for the second stage of vaccination – in 21 days.
You can also get vaccinated against coronavirus at one of 100 points based on city polyclinics. They work daily from 08:00 to 20:00.
Vaccinations are also available in commercial clinics. Moscow has signed 82 agreements with private medical organizations, 63 clinics have already begun to vaccinate. The vaccine itself is free for residents. Patients only pay for the injection service.
