Acting Director of the N.I. Smorodintsev of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Dmitry Lioznov warned the Russians that a person who has been vaccinated against coronavirus and has received immunity from this disease can still spread it himself. "A vaccinated person is protected, his disease does not develop, but the pathogen can get on the mucous membranes, remain there for some time and be released into the external environment," the specialist explained. According to him, a healthy person can also spread the infection, in whose body the virus entered, but did not cause illness due to high immunity. Therefore, the doctor stressed, vaccinated citizens must continue to comply with epidemiological restrictions - maintain social distance, wear a mask and gloves, treat their hands with an antiseptic. Otherwise, they can infect someone without getting sick. We will remind, earlier the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova advised those who have already had coronavirus not to rush to vaccinate. “Our observations, which we carry out on the basis of statistics coming from the regions, from medical organizations, indicate that cases of secondary SARS-CoV-2 disease are rare,” the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized. Rospotrebnadzor reported that antibodies to coronavirus appear no earlier than 32-45 days after vaccination. The maximum period for the formation of immunity can reach 56 days.
