Microbiologist Yevgeny Plisov helped Zvezda readers to refute the myths about vaccination and still confirm the need to visit the medical office for vaccination against coronavirus infection.
Myth one: is it possible not to wear a mask after you have been vaccinated. As the specialist explained, the vaccinated person immediately has a feeling that he is absolutely protected and he can not wear a mask, and communicate with everyone, kiss and hug.
“Any vaccine creates conditions for your body to grow so that you can defend against internal infection. And very often your chance of getting sick depends, in principle, on what dose of the virus you grab at a particular moment. And even if you grab a ton of this virus, you might get a little sick. And the vaccine has a protection system of 92%. That is, there is still a 5% chance that the vaccine had something wrong with you, it still remains,”the scientist commented, noting that you still need to wear a mask.
Even if a person is vaccinated and is asymptomatic at the same time, the vaccine and mask will reduce the chance that the patient will have any complications. However, he himself can still become a source of infection. Therefore, you just need to follow the rules of some infectious tone, said the microbiologist.
Myth two: could an effective vaccine have been created so quickly? Yevgeny Plisov explained that the doubts of people in this case are also understandable, since usually the creation of a vaccine takes 3-5-10 years. Accordingly, many people think that if a vaccine was created in six months or a year, it simply won't work.
“Most often, it takes a long time for specialists to research a vaccine for its complete safety and not causing any serious side effects. But now it is important to understand that there is a pandemic all over the world and no one can wait 10 years. And the virus kills millions of people around the world. Therefore, the vaccine was created in record time,”said the microbiologist.
Myth three: those who are vaccinated are at risk of contracting coronavirus even more often than those who are not vaccinated. As the specialist said, this question arises from a person's ignorance of how the vaccine works and what it consists of. Modern vaccines that are on the Russian market do not contain coronavirus at all. Adenovirus known to all Russian specialists has been added there, and from COVID-19 itself - only its small genetic structure, which has an indirect relationship to it.
The fourth myth: the vaccine has a lot of side effects and it can be harmful. Any medicine has side effects. No serious side effects from Russian vaccines against coronavirus have yet been recorded. The biggest thing that can happen is a slight rise in temperature. Rumors that the drug may cause anaphylactic shock against the background of allergies are also groundless, since such a shock can be obtained even in the dentist's office when the doctor injects anesthesia.
The fifth myth: a vaccine is the "chipping" of the world's population in order to destroy people. As the microbiologist rightly noted, it is even embarrassing for him to comment on such statements at the level of delirium.
“If you are afraid of being chipped by our government of the Russian Federation, then let Bill Gates chip you,” the scientist said.
In addition, according to the laws of physics, known even to an eighth-grader, no ray from any chip can create waves of such a length that it can transmit information from you somewhere and then kill the body. And besides, also from a completely invisible chip, which cannot be contained in the solution in any way.
