Read the article on how vaccination is organized, what is required for it, and who helps doctors and nurses.

In early July, the capital opened vaccination station in Luzhniki… Basically, it is designed to work with foreign citizens, but Russians can also get vaccinated here. Since the beginning of the work of the point, several tens of thousands of people have already been vaccinated against coronavirus infection.

Help in filling out documents, clear navigation, attention to patients and a friendly atmosphere – we will tell you how the vaccination center for foreign citizens in Moscow works.

The main thing about vaccination at Luzhniki

The Luzhniki Center is open daily from 08:30 to 22:00. Every day, doctors and nurses receive citizens from all over the world – from the CIS countries, Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa. They are assisted by employees of public service centers and Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Moscow Population.

For foreigners, vaccination costs 1,300 rubles. You can pay for the service on the spot in a special terminal. Vaccination is free for Russian citizens.


According to him, most often citizens of the CIS countries – Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and others – come for vaccination. In addition, Europeans, as well as representatives of Asia and Africa, are vaccinated at Luzhniki. “I decided to get vaccinated myself – I don’t want to get sick. I liked it here: everything was well organized, passed quickly, there were no queues. In general, everything is at the highest level, ”says Tatyana Khoteeva from Kazakhstan.

Who helps

Navigation in the center is thought out to the smallest detail: firstly, so that the flows of visitors do not intersect and there are no queues, and secondly, so that foreigners who may not speak Russian well enough can find their bearings easier. However, it is impossible to get lost here: administrators or social assistants (employees of the Department of Labor and Social Protection of the Moscow City Population) meet visitors and accompany them at every stage.

“Administrators help visitors to draw up the necessary documents: a contract, a questionnaire and consent to vaccination. They then escort visitors to the payment area and the doctor’s examination area. The doctor carefully examines the data that a foreign citizen indicates in the questionnaire, measures temperature, blood pressure, collects information about past illnesses and decides on the possibility or impossibility of vaccination, ”says Andriy Fedoruk.

Vaccinations are carried out by nurses, and data are entered into the information system by employees of the capital’s centers of public services. This is done to relieve the additional burden on the medical staff.


Employees of “My Documents” help in other points where vaccination is carried out: in Gostiny Dvor, pavilions “Healthy Moscow”, city polyclinics and offices “My Health” in flagship offices.

The vaccination center strictly adheres to the rules of epidemiological safety. Freezers have been installed to store the vaccine, warehouses for personal protective equipment, napkins and disinfectants have been created.

Taking care of everyone

The vaccination center takes care not only of visitors, but also of employees. For them there are special lounges and dining rooms, there are changing rooms.


Svetlana Istomina notes that employees of the civilian headquarters also help doctors and nurses at the vaccination center in Gostiny Dvor.

Nurses at the Luzhniki vaccination center point out that most often people ask if it hurts to be vaccinated. But they are experienced people, they know how to calm down and find the right approach to the patient.

The friendliness and help of the staff are also noted by the visitors of the center. This is especially important here, because not all foreigners speak Russian.
