Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that citizens who have already had a coronavirus infection should not be vaccinated. She said this in interview on the TV channel “Russia 1”.
“We do not recommend vaccinating those who have been ill yet, because our observations indicate that cases of secondary SARS-CoV-2 disease are rare,” said Golikova. According to her, now it is difficult to say what caused the re-infection. This could be either a mild course of the disease for the first time, or a false-positive test for COVID-19.
In addition, Golikova noted the similarities between vaccinations and cases when a person had had a coronavirus infection.
“The level of antibodies that we receive both during vaccination and during the transfer of the disease is almost identical,” the Deputy Prime Minister explained. According to her, the characteristics of the body are individual, both in terms of the course of the disease and in terms of the vaccine.
