“The percentage of vaccinated people in Moscow is less than in any European city.” Sergei Sobyanin – on the pace of vaccination against COVID-19

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin believes that the rate of vaccination against the new coronavirus infection in the city is unsatisfactory.

“Moscow is the first large city in the world to announce that we are starting mass vaccination. So what? The percentage of vaccinated people in Moscow is less than in any European city, and for some by several times, ”Sobyanin said at a meeting with activists in the northeast of Moscow. 

“We continue to get sick, people continue to die and at the same time do not want to be vaccinated,” Sobyanin said. The Mayor of Moscow stressed that all conditions have been created to get vaccinated simply and free of charge, but residents do not want to be vaccinated. “It’s a shame,” Sobyanin lamented, adding that in Russia the vaccination is free, and “in Europe it costs 1.5-2 thousand euros.”

“Well, what is it? Let’s take pity on ourselves, ”said the mayor of Moscow.

On May 20, Meduza wrote that vaccination in Moscow had actually stopped. At the current pace, it will be possible to achieve the goal set by the Russian authorities – 60% of those vaccinated – in Moscow in a few years.

The fact that the rate of vaccination leaves much to be desired was also stated in Rospotrebnadzor. “Unfortunately, there are some lags behind the rates of vaccination that we would like to have in our country,” Alexander Gorelov, director of research at the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor , told Interfax .

In Moscow, vaccination against coronavirus began in December. In Russia, mass vaccination of everyone over 18 years old started on January 18.

  • Russia are too busy selling their bat virus vaccine to any shithole that is stupid enough to buy it. They don’t care about Russians, as they keeep claiming they will protect. This reminds me of Putin’s hero selling grain to the West, while people starved in Ukraine.
