News, 20 August 2021

The JINR Operational Headquarters has announced statistics on the fight against the new coronavirus infection at the Institute: the total number of personnel who received immunity is at least 4,000 people or about 75% of the total number of employees.

By mid-August, at least 3,750 JINR staff members have received primary vaccination in Medical Unit No. 9, Dubna City Hospital, as well as in other cities (Taldom, Kimry, Moscow) and countries. In addition, the number of patients with an officially confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 in Medical Unit No. 9 was 206 in 2020, and 150 employees suffered from it in 2021.

Thus, the total number of JINR employees with an immune response to the infection is at least 4,000people.

At the same time, the situation with the incidence of the coronavirus remains complicated in Dubna: there have been 312 new cases of COVID-19 registered over the past month.

The active vaccination campaign at JINR continues: all the vaccines registered in Russia are available to the staff – Sputnik V, EpiVacCorona, KoviVak, and Sputnik Light. It is possible to get vaccinated both in Medical Unit No. 9 and in the first-aid posts at both sites of the Institute. Revaccination has started – re-vaccination of those vaccinated more than six months ago.

The Directorate of the Institute highly appreciates the responsible approach of the staff to vaccination and provides financial assistance to those providing a COVID-19 vaccine certificate.
