`` Over the years, our immunity decreases, and chronic diseases appear, which are risk factors for a severe course of COVID-19, '' the doctor said. - Vaccination is insurance against negative scenarios. And we are glad that today among those who come to us for vaccination, about 70% are elderly people, - says Irina Nikolaevna.

She recalls that one should refrain from vaccination during an exacerbation of a chronic disease, as well as if a person has just transferred a virus or infection. Some oncological and autoimmune diseases can also be contraindications. “The decision in each case is made by the doctor after examining the patient,” the doctor said.

Alexander Nikolaevich Vlasov from Solntsev came to supply the second component of the vaccine:

- I just got scared without vaccination, this is a huge help for us. After the first injection, I did not feel any discomfort, there was no temperature either.

Nina Leonidovna Kuznetsova (she came to the vaccination station with her husband Sergei Borisovich):

- We decided to get vaccinated in order to protect ourselves and our relatives. We do not want to get sick as hard as many of our acquaintances were. After all, our age, if we get sick, we can hardly bear it easily.
