Moscow will purchase at least 750 thousand doses of Sputnik Light vaccine for vaccination of labor migrants and revaccination of citizens who were vaccinated more than six months ago. Over 500 thousand doses of this amount have already been purchased.
“We will purchase at least 750 thousand doses of the single-component vaccine Sputnik Light, of which we have already received more than 500 thousand doses. It will be used to vaccinate migrant workers, as well as to re-vaccinate citizens who were vaccinated more than six months ago. I personally have already re-inculcated “Sputnik Light”, so did the people around me. In the face of the spread of a more aggressive strain of coronavirus, this is very important. If necessary, we will further purchase the drug in the future, ”she said.

According to the recommendations of the Ministry of Health of Russia, it is necessary to be vaccinated in a timely manner, regardless of the presence and amount of antibodies. The level of antibodies at which a person has real protection against the virus and new strains has not yet been determined by experts.
Re-vaccination from COVID-19 can be done from July 1 in one of the eight pavilions “Healthy Moscow” without an appointment. Registration has been open since July 5 in 12 city polyclinics.
On June 27, labor migrants were vaccinated with Sputnik Light. It is being held in a pilot mode at the request of employers falling under the requirements of the decree of the chief state sanitary doctor of Moscow. You can get vaccinated at the multifunctional migration center in the village of Sakharovo and on the territory of the Sadovod shopping center. As the mechanism is developed, the possibility of vaccination will be extended to other groups of foreign citizens, including the self-employed.
Sputnik Light is the fourth COVID-19 vaccine registered in Russia; it was developed at the N.F. Gamalei.
Anyone over the age of 18 can get vaccinated against coronavirus infection. Vaccinations are carried out free of charge by appointment at 119 points on the basis of city polyclinics.
