You can recognize them by the badge, which contains the name and surname of the social worker, the name of the social service center and the signature of the district office.

Metropolitan social workers began door-to-door visits to citizens over the age of 60. They will talk about vaccination against coronavirus infection and, if the resident wishes, will help to sign up for a vaccination at the clinic. This was announced by the head Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of the City of Moscow Evgeniy Struzhak.

“Due to their age, elderly citizens are still at risk, and the coronavirus is especially dangerous for them. From March 24, social workers will begin to make door-to-door rounds of Muscovites over the age of 60. Social workers will tell you how to protect yourself and your loved ones from coronavirus infection. Vaccination is the most effective method of protection today. Social workers will help the older generation sign up for a convenient date and time for vaccination. In total, seven thousand employees of social protection will take part in the information campaign, ”added the head of the Department.

The visit by a social worker will be for informational purposes only. The staff will talk to the townspeople and leave brochures with full details of vaccination options.

Household visits will take place from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 20:00, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 18:00. Employees of the social service can be recognized by special badges with personal data – they must contain the name of the employee, the name of the social service center and the signature of the district department of social protection of the population.

“Vaccinations are absolutely free. To make an appointment, you may be asked only for the date of birth and the number of the OMS policy. You don’t need to name your passport details, let alone your bank account number! If you are asked about this, there are scammers in front of you, call the police immediately, ”stressed Evgeniy Struzhak.
