Mass vaccination against coronavirus started in Crimea on January 18, 2021, and in Sevastopol – on February 8, 2021. More than 90 thousand people have already been vaccinated against covid, including the head of the republic, Sergei Aksyonov. Every month, more and more affordable ways to get a vaccine against coronavirus appear on the peninsula – MK in Crimea tells about all the existing methods.
The first, and perhaps the most difficult way to get vaccinated against coronavirus is to visit regular hospitals. In the medical institutions of the Crimea, the vaccine is received regularly, but the number of those wishing to receive the vaccine is much greater than the amount of the required drug. Because of this, Crimeans are forced to wait for several months in queues, waiting for the vaccine to be available from doctors. You can sign up for a vaccination through the State Service portal by selecting the “Registration for COVID-19 vaccination” section and confirming the time and date of the appointment. In practice, unfortunately, this does not always work – Crimeans often complain to the head of the republic about the non-working portal, which is why they have to personally come to hospitals and queue up there. It should be borne in mind that in order to get vaccinated, doctors often require a referral from a therapist, that is, a doctor’s examination will have to be passed in advance. In addition, you must have a passport, OMS policy and SNILS with you.
If a citizen lives in remote settlements, doctors can come and get vaccinated directly at the place of residence, however, the visit must also be previously agreed with the doctors, i.e., you cannot do without visiting the clinic.
The head of the republic, Sergei Aksyonov, has repeatedly pointed out to officials that there are problems with registering for vaccinations – according to the latest information, the queues for receiving vaccinations should be eliminated in Crimea by the end of the working week (19.04-23.04).
More convenient at the moment are mobile vaccination points, where you do not need to register in advance – it is enough to come to the doctors with documents (passport, OMS policy and SNILS). But at the same time, such a service is not available everywhere – mobile vaccination points for coronavirus were opened in the central squares of Simferopol, Dzhankoy, Kerch and Yevpatoria (they work on weekdays from 10 am to 4 pm without an appointment.). A similar point has appeared in the center of Sevastopol on Nakhimov Square (it will work from 10 to 19 hours on weekdays, without an appointment). In addition, in Sevastopol, you can get a coronavirus vaccine even at the Monsoon and SeaMall shopping centers, where mobile vaccination points have also been deployed (they work every day, including holidays, from 9:00 to 18:30).
Recall that the vaccine can be obtained by citizens aged 18 years and older who do not have signs of an acute infectious disease, as well as an infectious disease that has been transferred within 14-30 days before vaccination. The priority group for the vaccine is people over 60 years old, people with chronic diseases, as well as social workers and others who work with a large number of people. Vaccination takes place in two stages – with the introduction of the first component, and after three weeks – the second component of the drug. Within three days after vaccination, it is not recommended to wet the injection site, visit the sauna, steam bath, take alcohol and load the body with physical exercises.
In total, since the beginning of the pandemic in Crimea, more than 39 thousand cases of coronavirus have been detected, in Sevastopol – more than 13 thousand.
