This is happening both here and abroad. So, the other day in the United States, six volunteer testers of the American-German drug died, two of them received a real vaccine, four – a placebo. However, before the start of the study, all of these people were healthy.
And in Volgograd, several vaccinated doctors became infected with COVID-19. The fact was confirmed by officials from the regional health ministry. At the same time, they do not refuse that even before vaccination, all subsequently sick were tested for PCR and tests showed that people are not sick with coronavirus.
“But, apparently, they were already at the stage of the disease – in the first days the test could be negative,” suggests the deputy chairman of the regional health department Elena Krasnova.
But this is only a hypothesis. Tests for IgM antibodies, which are produced in the acute phase of the disease, are not provided by the protocol before vaccination. Like many other detailed health examinations. That is, no one will specifically monitor whether the person vaccinated with the coronavirus shortly before vaccination, this circumstance, by the way, is not even a contraindication for vaccination.
Vaccinators (before this also applied to volunteer testers) should be aware that vaccination does not protect 100% from the disease, but, in theory, should facilitate its course and minimize the consequences. Although, according to some experts, the latter is also written with a pitchfork on the water.
“Nobody even claimed that the vaccinated people would not get sick,” one of the Russian doctors agreed to comment on the situation. – Vaccination works only in conjunction with other anti-epidemic measures and strict adherence to sanitary and hygienic standards, it is when all conditions are met that the vaccine can help reduce the rate of spread of the disease and the number of severe cases.
So far, absolutely all vaccines created in such a short time, regardless of the country of origin, promise only a temporary result – antibodies appear for a maximum of 3-4 months. And then what? Another dose? How many times? Optimists argue that the main thing is to relieve health care at the peak of morbidity and waves, and then let those vaccinated get sick. But how safe is it for people with artificially created antibodies to face a real virus in life? No one has yet proven the likelihood that this “acquaintance” will not start the effect of antibody-dependent intensification of infection, which can increase mortality among the vaccinated population. As was the case with the dengue vaccine.
“Regular free vaccination of the population every three months – no budget will have enough money for this; the American vaccine Moderna costs about $ 30, the domestic one is promised for 15-17 euros, but the logistics are expensive, since there is currently no production capacity capable of producing millions of doses at one or several closely located enterprises, and this was warned about. that it may be necessary to conclude contracts with foreign pharmaceutical plants ”.
Another big problem, experts predict, is not just to mass produce, but also to stabilize the second dose with the coronavirus spike protein.
“What the participants in the clinical trials were injected with were experimental samples, not industrial production. The latter, for various reasons, has not been established either, including because it has not been possible to stabilize the second component of the vaccine. “
As you know, the Russian “Sputnik” consists of two components, the difference in terms of introduction between which is 21 days. Only after the last injection, that is, after another 21 days, should immunity arise.
There is already talk of extending the period between the first and second stages of vaccination. To increase vaccine production gradually, and to have enough for everyone. But it’s somehow strange that the rules and instructions can be changed so easily, and the final result supposedly does not depend on this.
As is known, the “rocket carrier” of the spike protein is an adenoviral vector. It is he who, as they promise, must trigger the necessary immune response in the body.
“But, excuse me, from what particular strain of coronavirus is this spike protein? – our expert asks a reasonable question. “In addition, the spike protein mutates easily, and it is precisely this part of the virus that is unstable, it is artificially modified. Another of the properties of the spike protein is that it is not perceived by the body as foreign. Isn’t it so that the body’s immune response begins precisely against the adenovirus, and the vaccinated people receive protection from it, and not from COVID-19, which, of course, can get sick after vaccination? “
Unfortunately, no explanation has yet been received on these issues. The developers, apparently, consider this information confidential and are ready to provide it only to potential buyers-partners. But who wants to buy a pig in a poke?
“The fact is that this vaccine contains two strains of adenovirus. That is, its creators say directly that with the first dose of the vaccine there will be a reaction to the adenovirus itself. But with the second dose, the reaction will be to the spike protein spike of the coronavirus. And at first, in any way, the reaction to the adenovirus is going on. Then to the second agent who is being introduced. “
“Of course, complications may begin in those who have undergone vaccination with adenovirus and then caught the coronavirus. This is especially dangerous with doctors, since, among other things, they continue to work in places with a high viral load – in polyclinics, hospitals, hospitals, that is, in areas of special risk. And the consequences of what happened in Volgograd are not yet clear. “
However, regional officials insist that everything will end well. The percentage of infected people known to date is still small. In any case, more people died in America after being tested with the vaccine.
“We monitored the state of the first health workers after vaccination: there was a slight increase in temperature, which passed on its own. After we vaccinated the doctors of hospitals # 4 and # 5, the medical workers developed a very positive attitude towards this vaccine. “
But what will be the algorithm of actions if similar cases are repeated in other regions, and not only among doctors, but also among teachers, security officials, social workers? Have those who send people on incompletely studied vaccinations thought about this in advance?
