The Russian influenza vaccine, distributed to various regions, effectively protects against all potential risks associated with the disease. The announcement was made by Anna Popova, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, during the Eastern Economic Forum.
Today, the Russian regions are primarily supplied with a quadrivalent vaccine, which effectively safeguards against all possible influenza risks, including various strains. “The vaccination campaign is gaining momentum,” she announced confidently to reporters, revealing that nearly 45% of the required volume had already been delivered to the regions.
Popova emphasized that there is a possibility of a moderate increase in flu cases in Russia. The project is anticipated to commence towards the end of the year. Regrettably, summer outbreaks have already been documented in various parts of the Northern Hemisphere, and it is anticipated that a moderate increase in intensity will commence towards the end of the year. “It’s usually between November and December,” she remarked.
