Mass vaccination against coronavirus is underway in Moscow. It is now possible to get vaccinated not only in hospitals and clinics, but also in large shopping centers, as well as in the opera house and other popular points where mobile teams of doctors work. The first such team of employees of city polyclinics began to work in the main department store of the country - in GUM. This is very convenient, as customers can visit the store and, without wasting time, get vaccinated against COVID-19. All sanitary and epidemiological requirements are met here. The main difference between mobile vaccination points is that no prior registration is required. The vaccine is available on a first come, first served basis.

Nailya Alibekova, volunteer:

“We need to protect ourselves. In any case, it can get sick a second time. I was ill once, I didn’t like it, I don’t want the second time, so I need to get vaccinated and defend myself.”

Vaccinations have been taking place in GUM for several days. The vaccination station in the country's main department store was located on the third floor of the first line. And every day there is a queue. The age composition is different. Doctors say that even foreigners came to get vaccinated. Everyone who wants to get vaccinated is first given out questionnaires with questions about diseases and possible contraindications.

Natalya Kuzenkova, chief physician of the polyclinic 68 in Moscow:

“Contraindications for vaccination: under 18 years of age, pregnant women, lactating women, persons with severe allergic reactions, I emphasize, it is severe; people suffering from oncological diseases and currently receiving immuno-compression therapy. All other possible individual contraindications will be determined by the doctor before vaccination."

Those who are vaccinated are given reminders with a list of possible side effects. According to doctors, the symptoms are similar to those that occur after getting the flu vaccine. These include a slight increase in temperature, pain and redness at the injection site. Symptoms go away quickly enough. After vaccination, you do not need to isolate. You can lead a normal life without restrictions. One component of the vaccine is administered first. The second - the patient receives it in 21 days. After that, antibodies are produced in the body.

Natalya Kuzenkova, chief physician of the polyclinic 68 in Moscow:

"In the third week after B-2, we plan that the antibodies from the Gama-covid-vac vaccine will be around 2 years."

The vaccination at the exit can now be used by older people and residents with chronic diseases. It is they who are at the highest risk group for the incidence of coronavirus. Roman Vasilkevich decided to get vaccinated only after consulting a doctor. He has diabetes and mild allergies.

Roman Vasilkevich, volunteer:

“Almost all my relatives have been ill. I was one of the few who have not yet had time to experience this disease on myself. I don’t want to be on the list of those who have been ill, so I try to avoid it as much as possible.”

Russia has already produced six and a half million doses of the Sputnik vaccine, and another 33 million will be produced by the end of March. According to scientists, in order to bring the pandemic under control, it is necessary to vaccinate more than 60% of the population. Having had a coronavirus with a vaccination, you can take your time. But medical masks are still worth wearing for those who have been ill and those who were vaccinated.
