Despite the fact that shopping centers and public service centers will be closed during non-working days, the vaccination centers located in them will continue to work.

The vaccination centers will increase the throughput to 35 thousand people a day, said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.

“Since last week, we have seen an increase in those wishing to be vaccinated and, most importantly, to re-vaccinate in six months. Today in the capital, on average, 26-27 thousand people are vaccinated per day, of which seven to eight thousand are repeated. Formed vaccination capacities fully satisfy these needs. Taking into account the fact that QR codes are introduced to visit certain places after November 8 and social cards for unvaccinated elderly people are blocked, we think that the number of vaccinated people will grow, therefore, starting this week, we are expanding vaccination capacities to 35 thousand. Since we already have a fairly rich experience in the rapid deployment of capacities, we will fully satisfy any demand of Muscovites for vaccination, ”the deputy mayor noted.

Despite the fact that shopping centers and public service centers will be closed during non-working days, the vaccination centers located in them will continue to work.

You can get vaccinated against COVID-19 in Moscow at vaccination centers based on 100 city polyclinics, in 20 shopping centers and centers of public services, in GUM, Luzhniki (sector D), 15 points at hospitals in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas.

Anastasia Rakova added that 1.2 million older people were vaccinated from the coronavirus in the capital. 98 percent of the elderly living in Moscow’s homes have been vaccinated, the same number have undergone revaccination.

Mild side effects such as fever or pain at the injection site were less common in older people than in younger people. Most of them developed antibodies after the first vaccination, and after re-vaccination this summer, almost all of them developed antibodies sufficient to protect against COVID-19. Among those re-vaccinated in nursing homes, not a single case of the disease was recorded.

Sergei Sobyanin explained the reasons for the introduction of non-working days

Non-working days will run from October 28 to November 7. They were introduced to slow the spread of coronavirus infection. All enterprises have suspended their work these days. The exceptions were organizations that ensure the functioning of urban infrastructure, continuous-cycle enterprises and some others, whose activities cannot be terminated in accordance with the decree of the President of the Russian Federation.
