As part of the educational campaign "Let's Understand Vaccines Together," organized by the Russian society "Knowledge" in conjunction with the all-Russian campaign #We are Together, he reminded of the need to take precautions until the end of the full vaccination cycle.

“Vaccination and immunity building are not equal to protecting against infection.

The infection cannot be prevented, but vaccination ensures that the severe course of the disease is minimized.

Vaccination is the key to stopping the mutations of the virus and ending the pandemic, ”Protsenko said.

According to him, after vaccination with the first component, persistent immunity does not have time to form, so all recommendations should be followed.

Earlier, general practitioner Irina Dobretsova, in an interview with Newinform, urged patients with coronavirus not to self-medicate, as this can lead to dire consequences for the body.
