Vaccinations are open for adult students of colleges and universities, workers of the Moscow Construction Complex and people with chronic diseases.

Registration for COVID-19 vaccination opens for college and university students from December 30, Sergei Sobyanin said in my blog… Students over 18 years of age can be vaccinated. Vaccination of those under 18 is not possible – the vaccine has not yet received approval from the Russian Ministry of Health for use in minors. Also, starting from this day, workers of the Moscow Construction Complex and citizens suffering from chronic diseases, the presence of which requires observing a home regime, will be able to vaccinate.

“I am often asked whether vaccination exempts from restrictions imposed in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. Indeed, vaccination reduces the risk of getting sick yourself and becoming a source of infection for others. Therefore, people who have been vaccinated should be given the opportunity to gradually return to normal life, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.

The first step in this direction will be the return of the right to free and preferential travel on public transport to older Muscovites, students over 18 years old and citizens with chronic diseases. Their social cards are automatically unlocked 14 days after receiving the second vaccine component.

Large-scale vaccination against COVID-19 began in Moscow in early December. List of categories of citizensthat can be vaccinated is expanding every week. The vaccine can already be vaccinated by Muscovites over 60 years old, employees of education, healthcare, culture, trade and services, industry, transport, energy, as well as employees of city social services, centers of public services “My Documents”, the media, public catering, housing – utilities, sports institutions, law enforcement agencies, employees of non-profit and religious organizations, volunteers.

You can sign up for vaccination on the portals mos.ruand “EMIAS.INFO”, in the city mobile applications “Moscow State Services”, “My Moscow” and “EMIAS.INFO”, through information kiosks in clinics or by phone.

You can get vaccinated at 70 points opened on the basis of city polyclinics. They are open daily from 08:00 to 20:00, except December 31st and January 1st. When applying, you must present your passport and compulsory medical insurance policy, and for those working in companies whose employees have a priority right to vaccination, any document confirming employment in the relevant organization is also required.
