MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. About 4.5 million Moscow residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, Moscow City Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Thursday.
"To date, this figure (the number of the double vaccinated against COVID-19 - TASS) is nearing 4.5 million, but it is relative, as some Moscow residents get vaccinated in other regions, and in the Moscow Region. The trend is not bad, in general. I wish it would remain the same. Everyone should realize that in spite of stabilization in incidence rates, the level is very high. [People] must take care of themselves and get vaccinated, but not hope for the chance," Sobyanin said in an interview aired on Rossiya-1 channel on Thursday.
The press service of the Moscow Mayor’s office and the city government told TASS that as of November 3, a total of 5.25 million people have received the first jab, and of those, 4.41 million are double vaccinated.
Moscow has opened 300 vaccination centers. Among them, 100 operate at municipal outpatient clinics, seven at public services centers, 154 at private clinics, 27 at shopping centers and others in popular urban locations.
