The expert said, someone should start vaccination from COVID-19
After completion of the test vaccine created by NIC of epidemiology and Microbiology named Gamalei and testing of the defense Ministry, it will first start to introduce people who are at risk, said the head of the laboratory of genomic engineering MIPT Pavel Volchkov.
The expert noted that now the vaccine trials are primarily conducted on military personnel in middle age, which is all right with health.
"Require additional clinical trials to see how effective the vaccine is for the elderly and children. For additional testing of the vaccine you must create a group age of people, to analyze how the drug affects them, how they develop antibodies. Immune system age people is completely different, she has smaller efficiency and limited ability to protect the body. From a scientific point of view, it will be interesting to see how the vaccine can protect the body most vulnerable to the virus people. You will also need to figure out how the vaccine works in patients with various chronic diseases. Ill COVID-19 does not make sense to vaccinate, because there can appear a side effect, and why once again to load a weakened immune system," - said the expert.
According to experts, the creation of a large number of vaccines is not a trivial task, but if it is able to quickly solve the massive introduction of an effective vaccine will prevent an epidemic COVID-19 on the territory of the Russian Federation.
