According to the infectious disease doctor Evgeny Timakov, Sputnik V, developed by the Gamaleya Center, is currently the most immunogenic vaccine, producing immunity most actively and for a longer period. At the same time, the drug carries a certain amount of genetic load and can cause body reactions in the form of temperature, pain at the injection site, and other things. "Sputnik V" is shown to those people who actively communicate with infections, while the drug is undesirable for patients with chronic diseases and diseases of an autoimmune nature, Timakov said. In addition, according to Sergei Voznesensky, Associate Professor of the Department of Infectious Diseases of the RUDN University, Sputnik V is more reactogenic.

The vaccine of the "Vector" center "EpiVacCorona" is a protein one. Infectionist Yevgeny Timakov notes that she also develops good immunity, but for a shorter period. This drug is indicated for the prevention of coronavirus for people with chronic diseases, the older generation, since the reaction to it is minimal. Vladislav Zhemchugov, a specialist in especially dangerous infections, noted that EpiVacCorona is suitable for the most sensitive type of patients: people with allergies or those who take drugs, for example, with immunosuppressive effects.

The specialists called the vaccine of the Chumakov Center "KoviVak" an average variant. It is not as heavy as Sputnik V, but at the same time it can give a temperature reaction more often than EpiVacKorona, Zhemchugov said.

He noted that three vaccines are a very reasonable option, as they all differ in their design platforms, technology, and slightly, but still differ in purpose.
