Pfizer: “There is no reason to worry or doubt the safety of the drug”
Kulyash Kurmanova, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor of the Department of Infectious and Tropical Diseases of KazNMU named after Asfendiyarov, believes that it is necessary to accelerate the vaccination of the population, including adolescents, against coronavirus. He said this on the platform of the regional communications service of Almaty.
“Due to the emergence of new strains of SARS-CoV-2, as many urban residents as possible, including minors, should be vaccinated,” said the professor.
?. Kurmanova believes that there is enough data on vaccination of children, pregnant and lactating women. Therefore, there is no reason to worry or doubt the safety of Pfizer Komirnati.
The professor also reminded that it is necessary to continue to observe safety measures after the city moves to the “green” zone, especially in the period of increasing incidence of ARVI.
?. Kurmanova is confident that the coronavirus pandemic will end when it is managed. This is possible only during collective vaccination and subsequent revaccination.
“It is necessary to revaccinate 6 or 9 months after the first course of vaccination. The level of antibodies gradually decreases, and the accelerated vaccine promotes their clear formation by activating long-lasting cellular immunity,” – said the professor.
He reminded that the coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing and there may be new waves of infection. Therefore, mass immunization is necessary.
