The hasty introduction of the vaccine against coronavirus may be dangerous, as there is a risk of side effects, said an Israeli immunologist and head of the Department in the Hadassah hospital of Ar and Tsofim Professor Jacob Berman. About it writes RIA Novosti.
According to him, modern technologies significantly reduce the time of the research, as well as test the effectiveness and safety of vaccinations. So, before they were developed and tested for decades and years, but now a matter of months or a few years.
The doctor cautioned against a hasty introduction, telling the story of vaccination against rotavirus in Israel 10 years ago. He stated that the mass vaccination at the doctors revealed the dangerous consequences. In many patients, the vaccine has caused intussusception. “I had this vaccine to be removed from the production,” he said.
Berkun previously said that a vaccine for the coronavirus is likely to be similar to the existing flu shot. That is, it will relieve the symptoms of the disease, not prevent it. The doctor explained that vaccines that completely prevent infection, virtually no, because the virus constantly mutates.
As of 28 may in the world the total number of people infected with coronavirus amounted to nearly 5.7 million. More 355,6 thousand people died and 2.3 million were cured.
