“The citizens need to take a responsible approach to vaccination. Due to correct and coherent actions, last winter only 18 cases of influenza were registered,” he said.

In turn, the head of health department of Penza Dmitry Kotsar said that starting from October 24, employees of city and district administration, as well as employees of all departments and agencies in the region would be vaccinated.

“Guest-vaccination” will be organized, which allows not distracting people from their work for long,” he emphasized.
