Earlier, the director of the Gamaleya Center, Alexander Gintsburg, named four groups of people who do not produce antibodies well after the administration of the coronavirus vaccine.

“Elderly people were taken to a separate group.

But, for example, I am an elderly person, I received the vaccine - and I have good antibody production.

I know another person who is 90 years old, and he also developed antibodies well, ”Altstein commented on this statement in an interview with URA.RU.

The virologist doubted that "alcoholics and representatives of other


named (Gunzburg. -


)" may experience problems with the production of antibodies to coronavirus.

According to him, the only group with such deviations are people with immunodeficiency.

It is noted that the vaccine "may not work on them." 

“People differ in their ability to produce antibodies, but it is rather difficult to distinguish them clearly into groups.

It does not depend on the state of health, but on the characteristics of the organism, which no one knows about, ”summed up Altstein.

On October 19, epidemiologist Felix Ershov, in an interview with NSN, commented on the situation with COVID-19 in Russia.
