Most of the batch - three thousand doses are intended for the local population, another two thousand - are reserved for foreigners, for whom the vaccination will be paid.

The head of the Ministry of Health could not say exactly how much the injection would cost a foreigner, referring to the need to calculate transportation costs, but such a price of vaccination in Moscow may be a guideline - there it varies in the range from 1200 to 1300 rubles.

The minimum threshold for mass immunization is 60% of the population. On Sakhalin, this figure ranges from 47,7% in the Aleksandrovsk-Sakhalinsky region, to 27% in the Aniva region. The indicator for Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk is 35,5%. For the formation of collective immunity, another 57 residents of the region need to be vaccinated, 582 people have already been vaccinated. At the same time, an increase in the incidence has been observed on the island in recent weeks, this week several days in a row. 100 and more new cases of COVID-19 are recorded.
