Vaccination against COVID-19 in special points reduces the risks of the disease compared to polyclinics. This was announced on Thursday, June 2, by infectious disease specialist Yevgeny Timakov.
“People will still come to vaccination points only for vaccination, and there will be less risk of getting sick. More patients will come to the clinic with various complaints,” he explained in an interview with TASS.
The expert also noted the need for the correct equipment of the point, in particular, the importance of the patient not sitting in the heat after vaccination, and also not standing in line.
“Under favorable weather conditions, in which there will be no risk [возникновения] high pressure, I would choose a street vaccination point if there is no need to stand in queues, provided that it is equipped with anti-shock kits, as expected, and the staff is oriented in providing assistance, ”Timakov emphasized.
Earlier, on May 23, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, did not rule out that if the share of immunity in Russia weakens, then the share of the Delta strain of coronavirus could increase. At the same time, she noted that at present the density of immunity is sufficient.
On May 20, Popova reminded of the need to revaccinate against COVID-19. The head of the supervisory agency pointed out that immunity to coronavirus infection is gradually fading away, so after six months you should undergo revaccination.
The campaign for vaccination against COVID-19 continues in the Russian Federation. Russians are vaccinated for free. Seven coronavirus drugs have been registered in the country: the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V, Sputnik Light, Sputnik M, EpiVacCorona, EpiVacCorona-N, CoviVac and Convasel.
