Kuzbass decided to introduce mandatory vaccinations against coronavirus – Rossiyskaya Gazeta


In Kuzbass, mandatory vaccination against COVID-19 is being introduced for workers in a number of industries, as well as state and local authorities. As specified in the regional government, one of the three available vaccines must be vaccinated at least sixty percent of the total number of workers in healthcare, education, social services, transport, industry and agriculture, trade, catering, sports, beauty industry, financial services, postal communications, housing and communal services and culture, as well as the MFC.

You should have time for the first vaccination before July 17, and for the second before August 17. For this, there are 138 stationary and 70 mobile points in the region. The order of the head of the region concerns those working under a labor, civil law contract in organizations and for individual entrepreneurs, with the exception of citizens who have contraindications.

The Kuzbass authorities took such measures due to the increase in morbidity and mortality from coronavirus. The number of people infected since the beginning of June has increased by almost 75 percent, approaching a thousand. The local health ministry announced its readiness to deploy up to five thousand beds for the treatment of covid and community-acquired pneumonia as soon as possible.

Also in the region, the control of observance of the mask regime is being strengthened again and restrictive measures are being introduced (until the end of the month so far). Among them: the suspension of public events in closed rooms of more than fifty people, the work of catering organizations from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. (except for delivery and take-away services), a decrease in the occupancy of theaters, cinemas, sports complexes and leisure centers. Employers are recommended to transfer at least thirty percent of employees to remote work.

So far, Kuzbass is the only region in Western Siberia where such restrictions have been introduced and a decision has been made on compulsory vaccination. But it is possible that this example will be followed in neighboring regions. For example, in the Omsk region, where an increase in the incidence of coronavirus has also been noted, Rospotrebnadzor has already suggested that the authorities act more decisively, limiting visits to food courts, cinemas and further down the list. The final decision has been postponed for now.

Meanwhile, the Governor of the Tomsk Region Sergei Zhvachkin, participating in a conference call under the leadership of Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova, outlined the problem of an extremely irregular and insufficient supply of vaccines to the region.

“Recently, we have been receiving an average of three thousand doses per week, although the region has deployed capacities for seven thousand vaccinations per day. Everything we get in a week, we can use in half a day. People are waiting for the vaccine, and we need to eliminate the queues. I ask you to send us fifty thousand doses in the next week and at least eighteen thousand in each subsequent week, ”Sergei Zhvachkin turned to Tatyana Golikova.

In turn, the Deputy Prime Minister instructed the head of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Murashko, to eliminate the deficit.
