Homeless people can get vaccinated against influenza at any Mobile Clinic’s bus stop. Vaccination is free, no additional documents or medical insurance are required. We also plan to vaccinate everyone who wishes to get vaccinated while staying in social shelters for the homeless.This has been possible for two years in a row thanks to our cooperation with local healthcare units.
In 2021 Charity Hospital together with an outpatient department №63 in Saint-Petersburg organized the very first in Russia vaccination campaign against influenza and COVID-19 for homeless people. 183 homeless people altogether were vaccinated against influenza, and 175 homeless people received vaccination against COVID-19.
Sergey Ievkov, General Practicioner, Director of the Charity Hospital:
“Vaccination of homeless people against vaccine-preventable diseases is first of all a great opportunity to prevent diseases and decrease the risks of complications in people living on the streets. Together with our colleagues from the state outpatient clinics we plan to continue improving vaccination of homeless people against other infections, such as viral hepatitis A and typhoid fever.”
