EU pushed to debate Covid-19 vaccine patent waiver after US U-turn

Vaccination against the coronavirus in Russia is not mandatory and the authorities do not plan to force citizens to get the injection, Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, Russian consumer rights watchdog had announced that companies in Moscow and the Moscow region were asked to vaccinate at least 60 per cent of employees.

“As before, the vaccination is not compulsory, this issue is off the table,” Peskov said, when asked if there were any plans to enforce the vaccination throughout the entire country after the announcement.
