More than 70 percent of adolescents fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
A total of 4,502 citizens were involved in immunization in the capital city by September 9, 2021. Specifically, 145 people received their first dose and 448 people have gotten their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 3,909 residents have been involved in the third shot.
Since the COVID-19 vaccination rollout launched, 94.8 percent of the citizens in the capital city have had the first dose of the vaccine and 70 percent have been fully vaccinated. Moreover, a total of 63,030 /70.9 percent/ children aged 12-15 and 25,179 /74.3 percent/ children aged 16-17, and 2800 /23.5 percent/ pregnant women have been fully immunized against COVID-19.
Starting from September 13, 2021, the third dose of coronavirus vaccination will be given to Sinopharm and Fizer vaccines for people over 18 years of age.
Also, Family Clinique will organize the vaccination against influenza. In the previous years, the government used to vaccinate more than 100,000 people a year, but this year 360,600 people will receive the flu vaccine.
In previous years, influenza immunization began in mid-November, but this year it will begin in mid-September, due to the risk of an outbreak of influenza-associated with the spread of coronavirus.
Influenza immunization will be provided on a voluntary basis to children aged 2-11 years who have not been vaccinated with Covid, and people over 65 years of age, people with chronic underlying diseases, and pregnant women. Influenza vaccine can be given to pregnant women at 14-36 weeks of age. The interval between Covid and influenza vaccines is 21 days, D.Bayarbold, head of the Ministry of Health, said last Friday.
