MOSCOW, June 24. /ITAR-TASS/. A threat of measels outbreak has been growing in Russia in connection with the arrival of refugees from Ukraine, said head of the Federal Consumer Protection Service (Rospotrebnadzor) Anna Popova at a news conference on Tuesday.
"The situation has worsened in connection with the arrival of refugees from Ukraine, where the level of vaccination against measles is two-three times lower than the necessary 95%," Popova said. The refugees, like Russian citizens, have been vaccinated against measles and poliomyelitis free of charge, Popova said.
A maximum rate of vaccination of Russian citizens and refugees from Ukraine will be ensured in areas where refugees arrive. The dates for vaccination will be set for each particular region, Popova said.
