We will remind that in Russia on January 18 began mass vaccination against coronavirus. At the same time, 40% of Russians are categorically against vaccinations, believing that the Russian-made vaccine has passed insufficient tests. Opponents of vaccination also point to insufficient information about side effects and test results. Vaccinations in Russia are made with Sputnik V and EpiVacCorona vaccines.
It's worth reminding that residents of the Jewish Autonomous Region even call on regional authorities to abolish the mass vaccination against coronavirus. According to Molodoy Dalnevostochnik, in Birobidzhan, a group of activists is trying to get Governor Rostislav Goldstein to be received in order to convey to him their concerns about the vaccination campaign. However, the head of the region is in no hurry to meet with activists.
