Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed the Ministry of Labor and Rospotrebnadzor to explain to employers the procedure for vaccinating and recording the percentage of vaccinated, according to the government’s website.
“To send explanations to employers on the organization of vaccination in organized work collectives and the procedure for recording the percentage of vaccinated,” the list of instructions reads following a meeting of the Coordination Council to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Departments must report the results by July 20.
Mass vaccination began in Russia in January this year. Later, a number of regions announced compulsory vaccination for workers in a number of industries amid an increase in the incidence of COVID-19. To date, four vaccines against coronavirus have been registered in the country: Sputnik V, Epivakkorona, Kovivak and Sputnik Light.
Earlier, the Moscow mayor’s office extended until July 22 the period during which employers must provide data on the vaccination of employees.
