It is important to know: what threatens the citizens of the Russian Federation for refusing vaccination

17 ноября 2021, 08:28
Under Russian law, immunization is voluntary, and refusal from it is not a reason for fines and prosecution.

Many Russian citizens do not want to be vaccinated, despite the risk of becoming infected and adding to the statistics of coronavirus victims. Added to this is the risk of being held accountable? No, the lawyers of the Kirpikov and Partners Legal Center answer.

“In accordance with the constitutional provisions, the dignity of the individual is protected by the state, nothing can be the basis for belittling it. No one should be subjected to torture, violence, other cruel or degrading treatment or punishment. Citizens cannot be subjected to medical, scientific or other experiments without voluntary consent”, - the lawyers say.

"Federal Law of 17.09.1998 N 157-FZ" On Immunoprophylaxis of Infectious Diseases" stipulates that citizens have the right to refuse immunization. Since immunization is voluntary, unvaccinated citizens cannot be brought to administrative responsibility in the form of a fine for failure to comply with the decisions of the chief state sanitary doctors of the regions on immunization".
