Elderly people are easier to tolerate vaccination against COVID-19. "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" writes about this, referring to the chief freelance geriatrician of the Ministry of Health Olga Tkacheva. "In a young man, the immune system, in response to the introduction of a foreign protein (…), instantly begins to fight it. With age, it does not have such a reserve, so, obviously, there is no such overreaction," she said. Despite the weakened immune response in the elderly, they form an antibody titer that protects against infection. "The study, which was conducted on" Sputnik V ", showed the effectiveness of the vaccine in 91%, including those of the older generation. A very good result, indicating reliable protection," - said in the message. Tkacheva added that 90% of residents of nursing homes in Moscow have already been vaccinated against COVID-19. Earlier, the Standing Committee on Vaccination of the Robert Koch Institute of Virology in Germany recommended using the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca only to vaccinate people between 18 and 64 years old.
