Students of Moscow universities complain about the compulsory flu vaccination. As evidence, they provided the order of the rector.
If 50% of the people in the group have been vaccinated, only they will be admitted to full-time classes. If less than 50% of the people in the group have been vaccinated, the whole group will be sent to distance learning,”cites an excerpt from a similar order for the Moscow Aviation Institute“Kommersant”.
A similar situation was described by students of the University of Civil Engineering, who said that they were encouraged to be vaccinated with messages on the loudspeaker and warned against admission to classes in case of refusal. The same problem exists at RUDN University.
Rospotrebnadzor employees in response to this assured that influenza vaccination is voluntary, but "when the epidemiological situation for a number of infectious diseases worsens, employees unvaccinated against these nosologies are suspended from work for a period of epidemic well-being or must be vaccinated."
Earlier NEWS.ru reported that State Duma deputy and former chief sanitary doctor of Russia Gennady Onishchenko is going to be vaccinated against COVID-19 with the first domestic vaccine Sputnik V. The parliamentarian added that at the end of the summer he was vaccinated against the flu.
