MOSCOW, November 25 - RIA Novosti. No vaccination will protect a person from the virus by 100%, however, a coronavirus vaccine will help "transfer a mild infection while sitting at home in front of the TV," Yevgeny Timakov, an infectious disease specialist and vaccinologist, told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova said that the COVID-19 vaccine does not isolate from the meeting with the coronavirus, but it protects against the severe course of the disease and the risk of death.
"Not a single vaccination saves 100% from contracting a viral infection. If there is a heavy load, then any vaccine will not cope, neither against the flu, nor against measles, nor anything. Vaccination is done so that when the infection comes, the troops are already standing immunity, ready for defense, and were not formed from reserves for 5-7 days, while the infection multiplies, "- commented on the statement of Popova Timakov.
After vaccination, as the expert specified, the very next day after the arrival of the viral process, the person will have active immunity, which will prevent the infection from entering the organs.
"Thus, the infectious process can begin, but there will be no complications, there will be no deaths, there will be no complications on organs, there will be no hospitalization, there will be no mechanical ventilation, and a person will carry the infection in a mild asymptomatic form, sitting at home near the TV and without bothering about your health, without consuming extra pills, "added Timakov.
