Planned revaccination of Russian peacekeepers against COVID-19 continues in Nagorno-Karabakh
Military doctors continue to revaccinate the military personnel of the Russian peacekeeping contingent against COVID-19 with the first component of the Gam-COVID-Vak (Sputnik V) vaccine in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Before the introduction of the Sputnik V vaccine, the servicemen underwent a medical examination, and they were also informed of all contraindications, restrictions and recommendations related to the re-introduction of the first and second components of the domestic drug.
Only those military personnel who had no contraindications, and who received a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 six months ago, are subject to revaccination.
First of all, medical workers, command personnel and duty units undergo revaccination, then the rest of the military.
The revaccination of servicemen is carried out in order to support them in the fulfillment of the tasks of the peacekeeping mission.
The second component of the vaccine will be administered 21 days later.
In accordance with the agreements specified in the joint statement of the President of the Russian Federation, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, from 00:00 (Moscow time) on November 10, 2020, a complete ceasefire and all hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh were announced.
To monitor the ceasefire and military operations, a peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation is being deployed in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.
