Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new disease which is caused by SARS-CoV-2. It is dangerous to the surrounding community. The senior citizens and people with chronic diseases are at the greatest risk.
Such chronic diseases as:
- diabetes mellitus;
- diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- respiratory diseases.
To achieve collective immunity against COVID-19 in a safe way, a large amount of the population must be vaccinated against the coronavirus. It will lead to an effective reduction in the spread of this dangerous virus. In other cases this procedure is safe. Tomography provides detailed data on the condition of the organ. You should consult with your doctor beforehand to find out if you can have a CT scan.
If necessary, the patient can be consulted by A. L. Yudin, MD, Head of the Department of Roentgenology and Radiology of the Russian Medical Academy of Continuous Professional Education.Make an appointment for vaccination
What vaccines can you be vaccinated with?
Three types of vaccines are available at the JSC Medicine Clinic (Academician Roitberg Clinic).
"Sputnik V" or "Gam-CovID-Vac" is the world's first registered vaccine against coronavirus. It is based on a thoroughly studied human adenovirus vector platform.The vaccine induces the formation of cellular and humoral immunity to coronavirus infection, which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The efficacy of the Sputnik V vaccine, according to the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Honorary Academician N.F. Gamaleya of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, is 91.4 %. This is confirmed by the analysis of data from the final studies. It is important to know that the effectiveness of the drug against severe cases of Covid-19 is 100%.
The patient is vaccinated in two stages: initially with component I and after 21 days with component II. The drug is administered intramuscularly.
"Sputnik Light" refers to vector preparations created on the basis of human adenovirus, which is used to transport the genetic information of covid infections. This drug is the first component of the Sputnik V vaccine. The second dose is not required.
The efficacy of the Sputnik Light vaccine, according to the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Honorary Academician N.F. Gamaleya of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, is 79.4 %. During studies in people who already had pre-existing immunity to the new covid virus, a significant increase in class G antibodies was noted on the tenth day after vaccination.
This suggests that this vaccine can be used to prevent re-infection in persons who have previously had COVID-19 and after their IgG antibody levels have been lowered. The drug is administered intramuscularly.
"CoviVac" is a vaccine developed by the M.P. Chumakov Federal Scientific Center. It is a whole virus vaccine (containing the whole virus), which has been chemically destroyed beforehand. It stimulates the production of immunity. According to the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Honorary Academician N.F. Gamaleya of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, its efficacy is 85 %.
Vaccination is carried out in two stages 14 days apart. Full immunity develops after the first dose, the introduction of the second dose enhances and strengthens the effect.
Indications for Covid-19 vaccination
It is recommended to people aged 18 to 60.
Is the coronavirus vaccine approved for pregnant women?
Pregnant patients are officially allowed to be vaccinated with Sputnik V. Vaccination with Sputnik Light and CoviVac is contraindicated.
According to studies, in which 827 pregnant patients were vaccinated with Sputnik V, the incidence of complications during pregnancy did not differ from the incidence of complications in unvaccinated women.
Vaccination is necessary if the expected benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus. Vaccination of pregnant women who are at risk for a severe course of the disease is considered most appropriate. It is recommended to inject the drug at the gestational age of 22 weeks.
Pregnant women with the following problems are at risk for a severe course of the disease:
- diabetes mellitus;
- cardiovascular disease;
- chronic lung, kidney, and liver diseases.
Vaccination is contraindicated for pregnant women during the breastfeeding period.
Preparation before vaccination
Before you decide to immunize your body, you should make a pre-vaccination appointment and consult with a therapist. The specialist conducts an examination and anamnesis, measures body temperature, finds out about the presence of chronic and acute diseases and assesses the risk of complications after vaccination.
If the patient has a positive anamnesis, or he has been in contact with an infected person during the last 14 days and has symptoms of acute respiratory infections, the biomaterial from the nose and pharynx is examined by PCR test to check for the presence of COVID-19.
Vaccination is not recommended:
- if the test shows the presence of immunoglobulins of classes M and G to the SARS-CoV-2 virus;
- people who have had COVID-19 within the last six months.
The Covid-19 vaccination is free. The cost includes an examination by a therapist before the procedure and an express antigen test.
