People who have had a new coronavirus infection may not get vaccinated until the fall of 2021. This point of view was expressed on Friday by the deputy director for scientific work of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, Alexander Gorelov, reports TASS.
“Those who have undergone a coronavirus infection at this stage can be absolutely calm and not sign up for vaccination at least until autumn. Absolutely, "Gorelov said on the air of the Doctor TV channel.
The epidemiologist also said that there are no clear contraindications for vaccination against the new coronavirus in patients with hepatitis C; the vaccine can be done in the remission stage of the disease. “There are no clear contraindications, but a lot is probably determined by the viral load and the stage of the same hepatitis. We know that in a situation of clinical remission, he can receive a vaccine,”Gorelov said.
The specialist also said that the "British" strain of the coronavirus does not fundamentally differ from the "Wuhan" and other types of virus mutations. The "British" strain is not fundamentally different from that "Wuhan" strain or those strains that were circulating. Because even one percent of the change in the genome did not occur,”said Alexander Gorelov, deputy director of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor.
