The chief researcher at the Gamaleya Institute explained on the air of the NSN why people get sick with coronavirus after being vaccinated. 273 participants in post-registration trials of the COVID-19 vaccine fell ill with coronavirus infection in Moscow, which is 1.5% of the total number of vaccinated. Deputy Mayor Anastasia Rakova spoke about this. The deputy mayor stressed that most of those who passed the test received a placebo. In her opinion, these figures "speak for themselves about the effectiveness of this vaccine." The chief researcher of the Gamaleya Institute Felix Ershov on the air of the NSN explained that for the third post-registration stage it is necessary to compare the indicators of sick and non-sick participants in the study. Get vaccinated! Vaccination against COVID-19 will begin in Moscow “This 1% of cases is the real incidence. The sick are apparently those who received a placebo, not a vaccine. The effectiveness of vaccination can be judged when the results are summed up. This is called a double blind experience. Half are given the vaccine, half are not. Then they look at how many people got sick, how many did not get sick. If the vaccinated get sick less than half, and better, of course, to 90%, then the vaccine works. So that's okay. When the results are deciphered, it turns out that half of those who did not receive the vaccine were more susceptible to the disease. At the end of December, they will already be looking at the results, I think. This is the post-registration third stage - when the effectiveness of the drug, in this case the vaccine, is tested on a large contingent. It is concluded whether the vaccine works or not,”he said. On Friday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in his blog that the coronavirus vaccination process in the capital has been launched. He indicated that five thousand people signed up for the vaccination in five hours. According to him, these are the residents who are most at risk: teachers, doctors, social workers.
