Health & Safety 


Please note, that during the summer months (from May to first half of July) in the forest areas around Krasnoyarsk (including Stolby) there's a danger of getting encephalitis from a bite of a tick. It is Siberia after all, it is wild. 
If you were bitten, you should carefully remove the tick (making sure no part of him is left in your body) and contact the local immunization center at 35, Prospekt Mira (city center), keep the tick for analysis - only about 1% of them have the disease, so the doctors will check if it was actually infected before giving you an injection of immunoglobulin against encephalitis..
There are many pharmacies situated in the city center, however, if you need a specific medicine you can contact a 24-hour hotline of "EniseyMed" pharmacy chain at (3912) 22-39-90, 26-56-26.
