Director of the St. Petersburg Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Pasteur, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Areg Totolyan, assessed the risks of vaccination against coronavirus for asymptomatic carriers. According to him, the vaccine cannot harm this category of people. In an interview with the Izvestia newspaper, he noted that there is no need to be afraid of a situation in which "there was contact with the virus, but there is no clinical picture, that is, the virus does not multiply in the respiratory tract." The epidemiologist clarified that in the presence of signs of acute respiratory infections, for example, a temperature of 37-38 degrees, one should refrain from vaccination. "If you lose your sense of smell, you need to postpone the vaccination even if there are no other signs of the disease," Totolyan said. He stressed that against the background of active infection, any vaccination will be "contraindicated." The expert also advised the Russians not to make decisions about vaccination on their own, but to trust the advice of a doctor - a vaccine prevention specialist. Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor said that it was impossible to get sick with coronavirus after the administration of the Sputnik V or EpiVacCorona vaccines against COVID-19. Russia became the first country in the world to register a vaccine against COVID-19. The drug was developed by NITsEM named after Gamaleya in cooperation with the Russian Direct Investment Fund and was named "Sputnik V".
