Today in Tatarstan there are 81,122 doses of coronavirus vaccines. This number is small, but there is no task to organize compulsory vaccination against COVID-19, said Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Tatarstan Leyla Fazleeva during a roundtable at the Public Chamber of the Republic of Tatarstan.
She asked to send information about the facts of compulsory vaccination against coronavirus to the headquarters, Realnoe Vremya correspondent reports.
Head of the Department of Medical and General Psychology of KSMU Vladimir Mendelevich took part in the round table by video communication. He noted that vaccination is a matter of personal responsibility and personal choice.
Mendelevich said that at first he waited for the third phase of the Sputnik V tests to pass, but realized that the risk of getting sick is higher than the risk from the vaccine, so his whole family took root. After 21 days, they are preparing to receive a second dose of the drug.
According to the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Tatarstan, to date, 24,000 Tatarstan citizens have received the coronavirus vaccine. Of these, 5.4 thousand people were vaccinated with the second dose of the drug.
