Russians who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus can start planning their vacation after they receive a second injection of the drug. Such advice was given by Andrei Tyazhelnikov, chief freelance specialist in primary health care for the adult population of the Moscow Department of Health, RIA Novosti reports.
Vaccination does not restrict travel, he said, as it makes travel safer. "Vaccination in no way restricts swimming in the sea and sunbathing," - said the expert, but stressed that overheating in the sun is always dangerous.
Those who have been ill with the coronavirus infection COVID-2019 and have fully recovered can also go on vacation, according to a specialist in the Moscow Department of Health. Only the planning of long-distance flights requires a separate approach; it is necessary to take into account how severe the illness was, and how long the rehabilitation of such a patient should take.
Earlier, the director of the Gamaleya Center, Alexander Gintsburg, where the first two-phase Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V was developed, told how to increase the effectiveness of the drug. He advised not to overload the body with physical activity for two weeks after vaccination in order to allow an immune response to form. Also, this process can interfere with alcoholism, drug addiction and depression.
