Measures against the measles

measles Russia legislation

Authorities in the Russian Federation have published measures for the prevention and control of the measles.

Employers will be required to carry out immunization measures against the measles among their employees and report to authorities.

On 11 March 2019 the Regulation of the Chief sanitary officer of the RF “On the performance of clean-up immunization against the measles in the territory of the RF” dated 06.03.2019 No.2 was registered by the Ministry of Justice of the RF.

This regulatory act requires you to carry out immunization measures against the measles among your employees and report the number of employees vaccinated to Rospotrebnadzor (the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare) by 31 December, 2019.

Please note that this Regulation also governs migrant workers. Art. 3 of the Regulation reads as follows: “3. Employers, who involve foreign citizens in the performance of work, must prior to 31.12.2019 take immunization measures against the measles of the mentioned foreign citizens that have not been sick with measles and have not been vaccinated or have no medical history of vaccination against the measles.

This issue should not be postponed and may require extra time for the following reasons:

  • There are not always sufficient vaccines in the health care facilities
  • One can be rejected for vaccination due to medical reasons, so it can take additional time to solve this situation
  • There are various requirements to the report from different subdivisions of the Rospotrebnadzor

In total the whole procedure and filing of the reports can take up to one month.

Juralink can assist you in order to comply with the above measures. If you would like to know more, please let us know and we will contact you soon.
