The Russian Ministry of Health called the level of protection of the vaccine against infection with COVID-19 unknown

How much the vaccine protects against infection with coronavirus and prevents its transmission to other people is not fully known, the Ministry of Health said. In this regard, the department urged to comply with sanitary measures, including wearing masks.

How much vaccination against coronavirus protects against coronavirus infection is not fully known, according to the interim guidelines of the Ministry of Health. “Although the COVID-19 vaccine protects a person from serious illness and death, it is still not fully known to what extent it protects against contracting the virus and prevents its transmission to other people,” the document says. To protect yourself and those around you, you need to observe sanitary measures, including wearing masks, the Ministry of Health said.

The head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova also said that all vaccines, including those against coronavirus, protect primarily from the severe course of the disease. “We must always remember that all vaccines provide protection against severe forms of the disease and against the extremely dangerous course that the virus can cause. But very many, primarily the influenza vaccine, do not protect against a virus and any manifestations of disease, ”she said. In this regard, she also advised to “consciously approach” the current vaccines and be careful, not expecting that after vaccination you will never get sick.

Mass vaccination against coronavirus continues in Russia. Those who were vaccinated or had COVID-19 more than six months ago can also come for a second free vaccination.
