As it became known from the latest source of the Russian media, then if in one of the countries new strains of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus begin to dominate, vaccination and other anti-epidemic measures, can make it a must for those, who have already had the Covid-19 virus.
One of the doctors refers to the test data of the American vaccine Novavax, regarding its effectiveness against British and South African strains of coronavirus, which showed, what people, already ill with covid-19, become infected with the mutated virus at exactly the same frequency, as those, who have not yet had an infection.
Vaccines, which exist today, effective against British covid-19 strain, and against the South African. Although they are weaker against the latter.
but, additional laboratory tests are needed, to understand, how effectively the fight against the pandemic will continue. The South African strain of the virus is less well neutralized by antibodies, because there have been changes in its structure.
Immunity, formed in a person after the first infection, may actually be lower, than immunity, developed after vaccination, because a defined and tested viral load is injected during vaccination.
We know, that covid disease can be very mild, and therefore the same person, who is seriously ill, antibody response may be weak, and the immune response is formed in this case stronger.
therefore, if a person has already been ill with covid-19 in a pronounced form, with symptoms, he does not need to be vaccinated, but if the disease was very weak, then of course, better get vaccinated.
Recommendation for maintaining immunity during Covid-19
Combined with the above, then of course, we strongly recommend you, keep the same distance, visit crowded places as little as possible and wear a protective mask.
Mask, partially protects against coronavirus, but you need to understand, what is Covid-19, transmitted through the mucous membrane. And this - oral cavity, respiratory surfaces, urinary, reproductive and digestive system, inner surfaces of the eyelids and auditory canals.
