TOMSK, Jan 10 – RIA Tomsk. More than 500,000 residents of the Tomsk region have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with both components of the vaccine, a member of the regional administration's press service told RIA Tomsk on Monday.

Earlier it was reported that the Tomsk region was among the six Russian regions with the lowest collective immunity to the coronavirus infection in October 2021. In November and December, authorities reported that the rate of vaccination in the region had increased significantly. The Tomsk region has a population of 1.07 million people.

"A total of 503,905 people have received the second component of the vaccine (against COVID-19) in the Tomsk region," the agency's interlocutor said.

According to her, a resident of the region is counted once in the statistics. Revaccination is not included in these figures.

According to the operative staff, 535,310 people in the Tomsk region have received the first component of the vaccine against the new coronavirus infection, including 161,579 people over 60 years of age. Moreover, during New Year holidays - from January 4 to January 9 - more than 4,000 people were inoculated. According to the regional administration, over 61% of the adult population has been vaccinated with the first component of the vaccine in nine municipal districts.

As it was also reported earlier, heads of organizations in the Tomsk region, whose employees are subject to compulsory vaccination against COVID-19 (education, healthcare, transport and others) may be fined from 50 thousand to 500 thousand rubles, if less than 80% of the employees were vaccinated by December 31, 2021. As of the end of December, the majority of such enterprises exceeded the "norm".
