The Commission of the Legislative Assembly on Social Policy and Healthcare on February 11 heard a report by the head of the St. Petersburg Committee of Health, Dmitry Lisovets, on the state of vaccination centers in St. Petersburg.

According to Yegorov, the chairman of the commission, United Russia member Yelena Kiseleva told the official that she had received many complaints from the elderly that, when they come to the clinic for vaccination, they inform the doctor that they suspect contact with the infected, and then the doctor sends them to a paid PCR. test or paid test for antibodies. Otherwise, people are denied vaccination.

“Lisovets explained that, of course, these requirements of polyclinics are illegal, there are no such requirements in the instructions attached to vaccines. Therefore, if you use the instructions, such claims to the elderly, who have every penny in their account, are not justified. The komzdrav is now conducting explanatory work with polyclinics,”said Yegorov.

Moreover, he recalled, the methodological recommendations of the Ministry of Health on vaccination against COVID-19 only state that those who wish to be vaccinated should not have ARVI during the previous two weeks.

"Plus, in relation to those who have had covid, it is undesirable to vaccinate for six months," added Yegorov.

At the moment, 126 thousand 473 residents of St. Petersburg have been vaccinated against coronavirus. Over the past week, the city has received over 280 thousand doses of Sputnik-V.
