Meeting of the Government Coordinating Council to control the incidence of novel coronavirus infection in the Russian Federation

Mikhail Mishustin:
Good afternoon, colleagues. At the President’s instruction, the mass free and voluntarily vaccination
against COVID-19 was launched yesterday. The jab is now available to everyone,
not only people in the risk groups. Additional vaccination points are being
opened. In some regions, private medical organisations have joined the campaign.
It is important that all precautionary measures are observed because both
people’s health and the epidemiological situation in every region depend on it.
I ask the governors to personally monitor the vaccination campaign in their
regions.

It is now possible to book a vaccination appointment via the Public
Services Portal, currently in a test mode, but it will soon work at full capacity.
This will allow us to plan the work of outpatient clinics more efficiently,
avoid long queues, and save the time of those who come to get a jab. It is also
important for observing the storage conditions of the vaccine. Following the
second stage of vaccination, one can use the website to receive an electronic
certificate. The Government is currently working on the issue of international
recognition of vaccination certificates at the President’s instruction.

Our current priority and the key to a successful vaccination campaign is ensuring
the production of the vaccine in the necessary volumes. The faster herd
immunity is developed, the sooner we will stop the spread of the infection. I
want to ask my deputies to be in constant contact with the vaccine producers
and designers and to promptly deal with all issues in case they appear.

Colleagues, the
coronavirus situation remains difficult, although it is gradually stabilising
in most Russian regions. We need to continue monitoring the situation and
ensure that the regions have sufficient hospital capacities and medicines.

Testing for
COVID-19 is underway all across the country. At the President’s instruction,
the Government is working on the service to inform citizens about their test
results through the Public Services Portal, so they can quickly and
conveniently receive information, promptly begin treatment and keep their loved
ones safe. While developing the service, we must focus on personal data
security. It must be securely protected. I ask Dmitry Chernyshenko to
personally oversee this issue.

Colleagues, it
is important that each medical facility streamlines all the processes. At the
same time, it is also necessary to constantly inform people about the
vaccination and the opportunities they have. They need to know in detail where
they can get a jab, and what the indications and contraindications are. You
need to answer all questions people may have, so please also focus on this
work.
