Around 2,000 Moscow residents got vaccinated against the coronavirus this weekend, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Monday, assuring that the healthcare system is prepared for mass vaccination, APA reports citing Sputnik.
The first vaccination centers opened in the Russian capital late last week.
"Around 2,000 people got vaccinated this weekend," Sobyanin told the presidium of the Russian government's coronavirus response centre.
"We have checked the entire system: warehouse operation, cold chain delivery to vaccination centres, vaccine storage in vaccination centres, defrost technology, vaccination ... I believe that the system is ready for more large-scale vaccination," Sobyanin added.
