Nikolay Kryuchkov, PhD in Medicine, Immunologist, in an interview with Sputnik radio named the timing of the appearance of antibodies to coronavirus after re-vaccination.
According to him, the level of antibodies in the body necessary to protect against COVID-19 will be formed no earlier than two to three weeks after revaccination. The specialist advised to avoid crowded places at first after vaccination.
“If a lot of time has passed [после первичной вакцинации], whether you have antibodies or not, or very little. By convention, you are not fully protected. The specific immunity does not work right away, so it is recommended to be careful for about two or three weeks so that the dose of the booster will work, ”the immunologist explained.
Earlier, Oksana Drapkina, the chief freelance specialist in therapy and medical practice of the Ministry of Health, called the difference between antibodies in patients with coronavirus and those vaccinated. According to her, immunity after suffering a full-fledged illness is stronger and better protects against re-infection with coronavirus.
