Almost all vaccinations have side effects, but each organism can react differently. Virologist, M. D. Anatoly Altstein explained why some people feel unwell after being vaccinated against coronavirus.
According to him, the effect does not depend on immunity, the body reacts in one way or another to the viral protein. “The viral protein has its own toxicity. This is how it manifests itself. Someone is less sensitive to this toxicity, some more. It does not represent anything bad or dangerous,”the expert told the“360”TV channel.
The doctor also noted that the reaction to proteins usually lasts for several hours. He added that 40% of people experience side effects after being vaccinated against coronavirus.
Earlier, Oksana Drapkina, the chief freelance specialist in therapy and general medical practice of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, listed the main side effects after vaccination against coronavirus. “Weakness, a little aches, a tendency to sleep, drowsiness, the temperature may rise for a short time. It may be accompanied by a little chills,”the specialist noted.
