In the Primorsky Territory, compulsory vaccination against coronavirus has been introduced. Several categories of citizens will fall under the new requirements.

As EastRussia was told in the regional government, the decision on compulsory vaccinations was made by the regional Rospotrebnadzor. According to the chief sanitary doctor of the region, Tatyana Detkovskaya, about 200 cases of coronavirus are detected daily in Primorye, and the rate of vaccination remains low. Now 41,5% of Primorye residents are vaccinated from the planned indicators to achieve herd immunity.

The decree concerns compulsory vaccinations for workers in education, health care, social protection, public services, transport, culture, sports and excursion activities. Also, those who work in the field of commerce, catering, entertainment centers and game rooms must undergo a full course of vaccination. Vaccination requirements have also been introduced for employees of the post office, hotels, and the service sector. Employees of housing and communal services, food industry enterprises, fishing companies, and civil servants should also provide vaccinations.

For those who have not yet vaccinated, the deadline for the first component of the vaccine is November 15th. The second component must be delivered by December 15th. Those who have contraindications to vaccination are not subject to the new rules. Employers must provide at least 80% of vaccinated employees in enterprises. Those who do not receive the first component of the vaccine within the specified time frame should be suspended from work or transferred to a remote mode.
