Vaccinating older people at home can be dangerous. At home, it is difficult to carry out a complete diagnosis and provide emergency assistance in case of deterioration of health.
After vaccination, a doctor should observe the patient for at least half an hour, says Sergey Voznesensky, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor of the Department of Infectious Diseases of the RUDN University. This is necessary if, after vaccination, there is at least a minimal risk of developing allergic reactions, the recommendations of Dr. RIA Novosti provide.
In this case, the patient should be provided with emergency resuscitation measures to avoid anaphylactic shock, which is impossible at home.
A contraindication for vaccination can be chronic diseases, which with age develop in people more and more and turn into an aggressive stage. And at home they cannot be identified.
Earlier NEWS.ru reported that young people tolerate vaccination against coronavirus worse due to the peculiarities of their immune system. The head of the cell proliferation laboratory at the Institute of Molecular Biology, Pyotr Chumakov, spoke about this.
