Foreigners will be able to come to Russia for a vaccination against COVID-19, possibly as early as this year. The head of the Federal Tourism Agency, Zarina Doguzova, said on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum that the agency plans to launch a vaccine tourism program in the near future. All countries with which regular flights will be launched by the time of the launch of the “vaccine” tours are invited to participate in it.

“There are 60 such countries now,” Doguzova said.

Meanwhile, since August 12, vaccination against coronavirus of foreign citizens has started in St. Petersburg. Before that, only Russian citizens could get vaccinated in our country with a passport and a policy.

The demand for vaccination with Russian drugs is growing abroad, the Russian Direct Investment Fund notes. For this purpose, several thousand foreigners are ready to come to Russia.

Today, it is possible to get vaccinated against coronavirus in our country with the “Sputnik V” and “Sputnik Light” vaccines from the Gamalei Center, ” EpiVacCorona “of the Vector center, as well as” Kovivak ” of the Chumakov Center.
