He stressed that before vaccination the patient must be examined free of charge by a doctor. Pre-vaccination examinations include collection of complaints, medical history, physical examination, and measurement of blood pressure and temperature. “The vaccine is administered to a healthy person, without symptoms of an acute infectious process, so absolutely all patients are examined by a general practitioner before the procedure. If necessary, he can refer the patient for consultation with a specialist : a cardiologist, allergist, infectious disease specialist, gastroenterologist, neurologist,” said the expert.

Under the compulsory health insurance policy, citizens can receive, for example, routine vaccinations against 12 infections: viral hepatitis B, tuberculosis, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, hemophilus influenzae and pneumococcal infections, measles, rubella, mumps , as well as tick-borne viral encephalitis: for children from risk groups according to indications. Vaccines against flu and coronavirus are also provided free of charge, which are included in the national calendar of preventive vaccinations and in the calendar of epidemiological indications.

Shkitin drew attention to the fact that in the current epidemic season it is possible to get vaccinated against influenza only with a vaccine from domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers. All medications contain current influenza strains circulating in this particular season, included in their composition according to the recommendations of the World Health Organization.

At the end of last year, immunization coverage within the framework of the National Preventive Vaccination Schedule was at least 95%, according to the Accounts Chamber report.
