The coronavirus vaccination can become a requirement for international tourism in coming years, adviser to the Russian Healthcare Minister Sergei Glagolev said earlier.

«This is not ruled out. Indeed if efficient specific prophylaxis aids appear with us, this will be a reasonable measure, because the specific prophylaxis, the vaccine prophylaxis is the most efficient protecting measure. If we have such a vaccine (the vaccine has already appeared and many vaccines are under development), then it is quite possible such measure will be introduced. However, this depends on decisions of countries and on the coronavirus epidemiological situation at large,» Chulanov said.
