A resident of the capital was re-vaccinated against coronavirus at the age of 104. This was reported on Friday, July 16, at the press service of the Moscow Department of Labor and Social Security.
“Six months after the vaccination of those living in nursing homes, we are re-vaccinating. The oldest resident of the orphanage at 104 was re-vaccinated, she feels well, “- quotes the words of the head of the Department of Labor and Social Protection Yevgeny Struzhak “RIA News”.
It is reported that Lyubov Alexandrovna tolerated the first vaccination at the beginning of the year perfectly. She had no side effects.
Struzhak also noted that people do not need to go anywhere, since the vaccines were received in the right amount immediately at the institutions. In addition, on the day of vaccination, residents of nursing homes undergo medical examinations and consult with doctors.
“Re-vaccination will allow inpatient social institutions to maintain the status of a coronavirus-free zone,” he concluded.
On June 30, a revaccination campaign against COVID-19 began in Russia.
As noted in the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, revaccination can be performed with any of the drugs registered in Russia. Re-vaccination will take place every six months until herd immunity is achieved in Russia.
On July 8, the doctor immunologist-allergist Vladimir Bolibok said that two components are not enough for the immunity to be long-lasting, therefore revaccination is necessary. After booster vaccination, the immune system again receives a signal that the infection is in the environment and that immunity needs to be maintained. This increases the level of antibodies by several tens of times.
Large-scale vaccination against COVID-19 has been taking place in Russia since January 18. The vaccination is given free of charge to everyone. At the moment, four drugs for coronavirus are registered in the country: Sputnik V, Sputnik Light, EpiVacCorona and KoviVak.
