Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has stated that the Russian government has no plans to abolish free corona vaccination. The Duma deputy Maxim Ivanov had previously written on his Facebook page that the government allegedly wanted to charge for the vaccination.

Vaccination against the corona virus will not be paid for in Russia. This was stated by the Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov TASS.

The Duma deputy Maxim Ivanov had previously written on Facebook that the Russian government allegedly wanted to charge for vaccination against the corona virus.

Mass vaccination of adults against the coronavirus began in the Russian regions on January 18, 2021. Russians can be vaccinated free of charge with one of the four registered vaccines – the two-component vaccine Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona, CoviVac or the one-component vaccine Sputnik Light.

Vaccination against COVID-19 remains voluntary in Russia. Vaccination is only compulsory in some regions and for certain categories of citizens, including those employed in the service sector. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stated that he is against the introduction of compulsory vaccination. According to the Russian head of state, however, the vaccination is necessary. Putin said:

“COVID-19 will not go away on its own.”

As Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova announced on January 12, the level of collective immunity to the coronavirus in Russia is currently 63.2 percent. In 12 regions, the value had fallen during the New Year holidays.
