Now the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, on the air of the Komsomolskaya Pravda radio station mentioned 42 days of sobriety.
“And before the coronavirus vaccine, I would not recommend alcohol. This is stress for the body. If we want us to have health and a protective reaction, we do not need to drink alcohol,”Popova added, thereby increasing the time recommended to spend without libations.
According to her, "the development of immunity is 21 days between two injections and another 21 days after the injection - 42 days." Plus another 14 days, which it is desirable to spend without alcohol - this is two weeks before the introduction of the vaccine. In total, the head of Rospotrebnadzor recommends that those who decide to be vaccinated against a new coronavirus infection forget about alcohol for at least 56 days.
The director of the Gamaleya Research Center, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Gintsburg was not so categorical. The scientist said that alcohol during vaccination against COVID-19 is not prohibited, but it should be consumed without frills.
Alexander Gintsburg recommends to completely stop drinking alcohol for three days after vaccination against coronavirus, Interfax reports. “In general, during the formation of immunity after these three days, of course, there is no question of any complete ban on alcohol during vaccination. This is just a reasonable limitation of consumption until the body has formed its own immune response to coronavirus infection. And this is true not only for Sputnik V, but also for any other vaccine, - said the academician.
According to him, the use of alcohol, like many, by the way, medications, is excessively capable of greatly weakening the immune system, which means that the effectiveness of vaccination will significantly decrease or even disappear altogether. These recommendations are valid for any type of vaccination. The chief narcologist of Russia, Yevgeny Brun, who generally agrees with his colleagues, assured that one glass of champagne for the New Year would not harm even vaccinated Russians.
