Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, said that a set of measures consisting of immunization with Sputnik V and booster vaccination with a nasal vaccine can protect against coronavirus by 100 percent. His words convey RIA News…
According to the specialist, such a prevention scheme is able to protect not only from the severe course of the disease, but also from infection with coronavirus in principle. “We assume, although it will need to be studied during clinical trials, that such immunity will be sterile, that is, the vaccinated person will have not only humoral, but also mucosal immunity at the level of the entrance gate,” the scientist noted.
He explained that when using a nasal vaccine, an independent barrier is formed for the virus to enter the human body at the level of local immunity.
Earlier, Gunzburg said that about 80 percent of COVID-19 patients in Russia who claim to have been vaccinated bought a vaccination document. “If those vaccinated with the alleged” Sputnik V “become seriously ill, as the data show, these are people who, unfortunately, used the certificates they bought, fake certificates,” Gunzburg said.
