Usually, young people in excellent health are talking about feeling bad after the vaccine. According to epidemiologist Alexander Kharitonov, this is due to the fact that a young organism with healthy immunity is fighting the virus in a vaccine. Therefore, fever, body aches and other flu symptoms occur.
The epidemiologist also said that the production of antibodies in the body begins as early as the first week after vaccination. However, this does not mean that a person is protected from the virus - only after three weeks from the second vaccination, a sufficient amount of antibodies will be produced in the body.
“Of course, no vaccine protects 100%. But I repeat: a person who has been vaccinated, even if he gets sick, will not suffer a serious illness. And the most important thing is that he will not die,”the specialist emphasized.
According to the doctor, if after this period no antibodies were found in the body, you should not be nervous. Firstly, they may appear later, so do not rush. Secondly, it is worth considering the quality of the test systems used, as well as the analysis method used by the laboratory.
“In any case, the immune system of the vaccinated person is already ready to face the coronavirus. She will see and react to the penetration of the pathogen,”said Alexander Kharitonov in an interview with Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
In conclusion, the expert denied the opinion that the first days after vaccination it is necessary to stay at home so as not to infect colleagues and loved ones. The fact is that all domestic vaccines for COVID-19 are created on the basis of a non-living virus, so the person who was vaccinated is not contagious.
Many also worry that the vaccine can harm the elderly, but judging by the comments on the Web from pensioners who have already been vaccinated, there is nothing to be afraid of. What Russian pensioners say about their health after vaccination, read on "Word and Deed".
