Vaccination is not the cause of the occurrence of diseases of the genetic level, but it can manifest existing problems in the functioning of the body. Valery Ilyinsky, Director of the Genotek Medical Genetic Center, spoke about this.
Vaccination cannot provoke the onset of hereditary diseases, since such diseases are not at all caused by external factors. And if a person has some kind of genetic mutation leading to a disease, then this disease will still develop. I have not heard about cases where the debut of the disease was the result of vaccination, - Ilyinsky explained on the air of Radio 1.
However, the expert continued, if you get vaccinated against contraindications, then the course of the genetic disease may worsen. The fact is that each vaccine induces an immune response and if the patient has any autoimmune disease at an early stage, then
At the same time, vaccination, contrary to contraindications, can worsen the course of a genetic disease. The immunity activated by the vaccine will lead to an aggravation of the disease. Moreover, almost all vaccinations are contraindicated in the presence of an autoimmune disease.
Unfortunately, people do not always know that they have such a disease, so sometimes they first encounter it just after vaccination. But you need to understand that the connection is not that the person was healthy, but got sick because of the vaccination, but that there was already a violation, and the vaccination worsened this situation, the geneticist explained.
In addition, the immunity formed with the help of vaccinations and transferred diseases is not inherited, since it is acquired. As Ilyinsky explained, immunity is formed by responding to the challenges that a person faces all his life. However, these properties are not encoded in DNA and will not be passed on to our children.
In 2021, a powder form of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine will appear. This was stated by the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov, NEWS.ru reported.
