The press service of Vladimir city administration announced Friday’s data on vaccination against coronavirus – 46,973 residents received the first component of the vaccination and 20,022 received both components. It is reported that 2,994 people were waiting in line for vaccination in medical institutions of the city. It is assumed that these are those who have already signed up for vaccination.
The mayor’s office notes that all health care facilities of the city, which vaccinate against COVID-19, have the necessary stock of the vaccine. At the same time, the readers of ProVladiiir said the day before that when trying to sign up for vaccination through the “State Service” website, a message appears saying that “there are no medical positions for which a vaccination appointment is available”.
As a result, those wishing to be vaccinated are put on a waiting list with a promise to inform later about the vaccination appointment. Another of our readers reported that he was scheduled for vaccination in September, which means he will be able to get his first vaccination against coronavirus only two months later.
How do reports from the city administration about sufficient stock of vaccine correlate with the fact that those who want to get vaccinated do not set a date of visit to the medical institution, but only put on a waiting list or invite only in two months? The press service of the mayor’s office explained that the data on the situation is supplied to them by the city department of civil protection, and there they come from medical institutions. Get a quick comment from the Department of Health – the department answers only to official editorial requests, and the response time stretches up to one week, while the data are updated every day.
Please be reminded that Olga Grebneva, deputy governor in charge of the Health Ministry, announced last week that practically all Russian regions are short of the coronavirus vaccine. Vladimir Sipyagin also confirmed this information. According to him, up to three and a half thousand people are vaccinated daily in the region, and more than eight thousand could be vaccinated. But there is not enough vaccine. The governor held telephone conversations with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, told about the difficult situation and asked to speed up and increase the volume of supplies of drugs to the region-33.
