MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) — More than 2.3 million people, including one million children, have been inoculated against flue and respiratory diseases in Moscow, a spokesman for the city health department told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“According to the Russian consumer rights protection authority (Rospotrebnadzor), as of December 2, 2011, some 2.368 million people were vaccinated, either at the expense of the budget and employers or at their own expenses,” the spokesman said. Apart from that, about one million children, including more than 600,000 schoolchildren, were inoculated in the autumn vaccination campaign.
In late November, head of the city health department Leonid Pechatnikov said that the flu epidemics threshold among children in Moscow was exceeded by ten percent. “So far, the situation is under control, there is no panic,” he then said. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin ordered to keep the situation under control.
In February 2011, some Moscow schools were closed for quarantine over the flu outbreak.
