30 thousand Bashkiria residents were jabbed with first and second parts of anti-COVID vaccine
Bashkortostan received 122,592 doses of vaccine to prevent COVID-19. As of March 3, 86 thousand people were jabbed with the first part, 29 565 residents were vaccinated with the first and second parts. Radiy Khabirov reported this at a meeting on vaccination of residents of Russia against coronavirus. Tatiana Golikova, Deputy Prime Minister of the country, held it as a video conference.
"Vaccines are promptly distributed to medical organizations. We have developed all the necessary routes and experience. We admit that we are slightly behind in vaccinating older people over 60 years old. This is due, among other things, to the fact that we still maintain a mandatory self-isolation regime for residents over 65 years old. However, we have already increased the coverage with this vaccine category. Besides, we have quite many social service institutions for the population, which are very vulnerable if an infection gets there. Therefore, we sent large batches of vaccines there too," the Head of the Region noted.
According to him, there are 11 vaccination points in Bashkortostan, including mobile ones.
"Their total capacity is 7,500 people per day. We are also preparing new vaccination centers for opening. We have also organized the vaccination of residents by mobile vaccination teams, including at companies' request. The largest enterprises of the republic have already submitted such applications. We are carrying out a vaccination campaign in their work teams and getting positive feedback," Radiy Khabirov said.
