Thousands of residents inside the city have already registered themselves to receive the initial two shots over the weekend, although the amount being produced by Russia is still yet unclear regarding the manufacturing of vaccination in Moscow. It is due to the limited amount of two million dosages being able to manufacture by the end of this year for the COVID-19 vaccination in Moscow, which is only yet available for patients with critical conditions.
The Mayor of the capital city of Russia, Sergei Sobyanin, said that the possibly effective coronavirus vaccination in Moscow would be offered to all 13 million residents inside the city who are currently working as social workers, healthcare service providers, and school staff. As soon as more amount of vaccine is available for consumption, the list of people would further increase.

The facilitation would be provided between 8 am to 8 pm local time.
Those people who have received some kind of intramuscular injections in the past 30 days or have a prevailing respiratory illness diagnosed within the previous two weeks will be exempted from the vaccination program, along with individuals with specific chronic diseases, are pregnant or women currently breastfeeding an infant. Each individual admitted for the vaccination in Moscow would be subjected to two doses of injections with a gap of 21 days in each dose.
Recipients for COVID-19 vaccination in Moscow
People who have received the coronavirus treatment vaccination in Moscow have been very calm while receiving immunity against the deadly viral pathogen that has affected almost every household across the country.
Although the people have a very peaceful reaction, the clinical trials for the Sputnik V vaccine are still currently undergoing to test out its efficacy and safety for consumption for humans. One of the doctors involved in the study stated that the amount of coronavirus positive patients she has seen during her clinical rotation at the hospital, she personally would prefer taking the chances with vaccination in Moscow that is being distributed.
One woman standing in line to receive her experimental injective vaccine said that everything has to start somewhere. Every individual that was standing in line for receiving vaccination in Moscow has signed up voluntarily. Before getting the antidote for the coronavirus infection, the vials were removed from the freezer 15 minutes prior to being injected, and the individuals were asked some generalized health questions before application.
The pamphlets provided to people along with the registrations have given warning for possible side effects that might be caused due to the vaccination in Moscow, though the side effects could be from mild to moderate and lasts for the only couple of days.
