On the territory of the Krasnodar Territory, over 2.5 million people have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus. This was reported in the press service of the regional administration and also added that in order to achieve collective immunity, according to experts, almost one and a half times more are needed – 3.6 million.
As the Governor of Kuban, Veniamin Kondratyev, noted, the coronavirus is constantly acquiring new mutations, so only mass vaccination can correct the situation and reduce the incidence in the region.
– All conditions have been created for the mass vaccination in the region, and over the past month we have been able to increase the pace. To date, more than 2.5 million people, or 71 percent of the plan, have already been vaccinated against COVID-19. Each of them showed the utmost responsibility for their own lives and the health of their loved ones. I am grateful to everyone who has already been vaccinated, – said Veniamin Kondratyev.
In total, more than 3.3 million doses of vaccine have already been delivered to the Krasnodar Territory during the pandemic, and soon a new batch will arrive in the region. In the last 24 hours alone, 13.8 thousand people were vaccinated in the region. At the same time, about 230 thousand residents of the Kuban have already undergone revaccination.
