Covid-19 mandatory vaccination in some Russian regions supported

Moscow, Jun 17 (Prensa Latina) The decision by some regions to introduce Covid-19 mandatory vaccination for certain groups of citizens is a move in the right direction, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

‘This is my personal point of view,’ the Russian politician told Ekho Moskvy radio station, an opinion that contrasts with that of other authorities in the country in favor of maintaining vaccination as a voluntary process.

Peskov also said that he ‘fully and completely supports’ the recommendation by the Council of Rectors of Universities in Moscow and the Moscow region that only students who have a certificate of vaccination, a certificate of the presence of antibodies or a document proving the impossibility of being immunized, could attend face-to-face classes.

Authorities in Moscow and the Moscow region were the first in Russia to announce the coronavirus mandatory vaccination of at least 60 percent of workers in the service sectors.

According to the operational staff to fight the pandemic, the country reported this Thursday 14,057 new contagions, totaling 5,264,047, a 0.27 percent increase.
