A single-component vaccine, Sputnik Light, and a two-component vaccine, Sputnik V, are available there.
Now you can get a booster vaccination against COVID-19 in all city vaccination centers. There, the townspeople will be able to get vaccinated with a single-component vaccine “Sputnik Light” or a two-component “Sputnik V”, said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
“We continue to expand opportunities for vaccination against coronavirus infection in Moscow, including for repeated vaccinations. We have already started re-vaccination in nursing homes. Starting today, July 22, it will be possible to get a second vaccination with Sputnik Light or Sputnik V in all existing urban vaccination centers – in 119 polyclinics, 45 pavilions “Healthy Moscow”, centers of public services “My Documents” and other popular public places “, – she noted.
Re-vaccination is recommended six months after receiving the first component of the vaccine. This will help to form additional protection of the body against infection with new, even more aggressive strains. After the epidemiological situation with COVID-19 improves, revaccination should be carried out once a year.
If the primary vaccination took place in city polyclinics or the places of work of mobile teams of the city Department of Health, only a passport and a compulsory medical insurance policy will be required to undergo a second vaccination. If the vaccination was done at other vaccination points (for example, in federal or private medical organizations, in another region), be sure to present a certificate of vaccination.
119 vaccination centers operate on the basis of city polyclinics. Muscovites are received there by appointment, seven days a week from 08:00 to 22:00. You can get vaccinated without an appointment in the Healthy Moscow pavilions. They are open from 08:00 to 22:00, but in fact they work until the last visitor. Also, pre-registration is not required in shopping centers and other public places.
