Who earned vaccination
The purchase of vaccines for state needs in 2016, was engaged in a subsidiary of the state Corporation “rostec” “national immunobiological company” (“national immunobiological company”), the company said. In the middle of 2015, the company was appointed by the government the only supplier of domestic vaccines under the immunization calendar in mid-2015.
So the national vaccination calendar
Free flu vaccines under the national immunization calendar are procured at the Federal level, and is intended only for certain categories of the population. These include children, students, health workers, transport, education, utilities, as well as pregnant and people with certain chronic diseases and people older than 60 years and military service. Among these groups, the MoH and the CPS aim to vaccinate 75% of the population, said chief infectionist of the Ministry Irina Shestakova.

For the money, “national immunobiological company” has bought 47.8 million doses of vaccines. Of these, 30.1 million doses intended for adults and 17.7 for children. For adults “national immunobiological company”, according to her own information, purchased 20.5 million doses “Savegraph” and 9.6 million doses “Grippola”. For children – 6.4 million doses “Savegraph”, 8.5 million “Grippol plus” and 2.8 million doses of “Ultrix”. All vaccines will be delivered to the regions until 30 October 2016, stressed in the “national immunobiological company”.
The vast majority of the vaccine itself “national immunobiological company” and manufactures. “Savegrp” is produced by FSUE NPO “Microgen”, which should be corporatized and transferred to the management of “national immunobiological company” to the end of the year, and at OOO “FORT”. According to SPARK Interfax, “national immunobiological company” owned by its blocking stake “Fort” (25%+ 1 share), the remaining 75% of the company OOO”, Megard Groups” is controlled by Anton Katlinsky. Also on the capacity of the “FORT” produced vaccine”, Ultrex”.
“Grippol” and “Grippol plus” manufactured by companies that are not affiliated with the “national immunobiological company” Saint — Petersburg research Institute of Vaccines and Sera and pharmaceutical company “Petrovax farm” respectively.
Margin of the company from a single supplier — 34 million rubles., have disclosed in “national immunobiological company”. Another 2.5 billion roubles was spent on their own “Savegrp and “Ultrix” and somehow returned in the structure “national immunobiological company”. “Buying drugs “Microgen” or the “Fort”, we will pay the cost of the drug specified by the manufacturer. To say that something “comes back” due to the purchases of “private” vaccines incorrect,” insisted in the company.
The emergence of the single buyer may reduce competition in the market, said the General Director of the analytical company DSM Group Sergey shuljak. But, on the other hand, the large volume of purchases, as a rule, lead to savings, experts say. According to the calculations of DSM Group, 47.8 million doses of the claimed vaccine was supposed to take about 6 billion rubles., and not 4.2 billion, which met the “national immunobiological company”. The company recognized that they were able to save market price for the vaccines above.
