Mass vaccination against coronavirus begins on Sakhalin. Those vaccinated will be allowed to wear badges instead of masks. Experts assess this initiative ambiguously. 

According to the press service of the Sakhalin Oblast government, the vaccination campaign starts on Saturday. In total, about nine thousand doses of Sputnik V were delivered to the region. According to the regional authorities, the more people are grafted, the sooner it will be possible to form a collective immunity and get out of the crisis.

As an incentive to vaccination, everyone who has received the vaccine is encouraged to wear a special badge instead of masks. Green zones will be created in shops and enterprises where everyone will receive the drug. Every month, according to forecasts of the authorities, the supply of the drug will amount to about 20 thousand doses. It will be possible to get vaccinated in every district of the region.

However, experts have evaluated this initiative in different ways. As they say “News», It is really necessary to encourage vaccination, but the vaccination itself does not yet give a XNUMX% guarantee that a person does not carry a potential epidemiological danger.
