How to sign up for a vaccination, is it possible to vaccinate those who have been ill, pensioners and children? The answers to these and other questions can be found in the mos.ru article.

Free vaccination against COVID-19 began in December. In the capital, 70 vaccination centers have been opened on the basis of city adult polyclinics. They are open daily and will be open even during the New Year and Christmas holidays. We have collected answers to the most popular questions from residents about vaccination.

Is it possible to vaccinate those who have been ill and when?

There is no prohibition on vaccination against coronavirus for those who have recovered. A resident can be vaccinated if he has no contraindications, and more than two weeks have passed since any infectious disease. You also need to have a compulsory medical insurance policy and fit into one of the categories for which vaccination is currently open.

What are the contraindications for vaccination?

You can sign up and get vaccinated against COVID-19 if you:

– over 18 years old;

– have a compulsory medical insurance policy;

– an employee in the field of health care, education of city social services, centers of public services, cultural institutions or trade and services, transport, energy and industry and the media, housing and communal services, public catering, construction, sports or law enforcement agencies (including the police, prosecutor’s office, courts and others ), work with non-profit or religious organizations, or are a volunteer, student, have chronic diseases (but the vaccine is not contraindicated), or are over 60 years old;

– do not have ARVI at the time of vaccination and have not been sick in the last two weeks before it;

– have not been vaccinated in the last 30 days;

– not pregnant or breastfeeding (for women).

When will vaccinations be opened for all Muscovites?

When new doses of vaccine are received, the list of persons who are open to vaccination immediately expands, preference is given to those categories of citizens who are most at risk of the disease. As soon as the vaccine supply is sufficient, vaccination for everyone will start in Moscow.

Will those who received a placebo during clinical trials be vaccinated?

Participants in the study cannot yet be vaccinated in the framework of civilian circulation. For each volunteer, a personalized record is kept, and the system will not allow him to get vaccinated. Vaccination is not available even if only one component of the vaccine is administered in the study and no further participation is made.

This rule is due to the fact that neither the volunteer himself nor the medical professional know what he received in the study – a placebo or a drug. Without this understanding, getting a real vaccine can be unsafe.

The procedure and terms of information disclosure are determined by the institute – the organizer of the study. Upon completion of the clinical trial and publication of the results, participants who received a placebo will have the opportunity to receive vaccinations as a priority.

What vaccine will be injected?

At the moment, free vaccination against COVID-19 is carried out with the Sputnik V (Gam-Covid-Vak) vaccine, developed by the National Research Center named after N.F. Gamalea of ​​the Ministry of Health of Russia. It is safe because it does not contain the elements of the coronavirus. As part of the post-registration study of the vaccine, in which more than 20 thousand people have already taken part, not a single case of serious complications was recorded.

What documents regulate the safety of the vaccine?

During registration, the Ministry of Health of Russia establishes requirements for the quality of the vaccine, the Ministry of Industry and Trade monitors compliance with production requirements. Roszdravnadzor monitors the quality of the vaccine in circulation, including carrying out mandatory quality control of each vaccine batch.

What website can be used to sign up for a vaccination?

You can sign up for vaccination in the section “Services” on the mos.ru website. To do this, go to the “Service Catalog”, select the “Health” tab, then click “Appointment to a doctor” and “Sign up for vaccination against COVID-19”.

In the “Patient” section, indicate the number of the compulsory medical insurance policy and the date of birth (if the data is entered in your personal account, select it in the drop-down list), and then select a convenient time for the appointment.

You can also sign up for vaccination:

How can the vaccine affect the health of 65+ people?
