According to Komsomolskaya Pravda, more than 1.5 million people in Russia have already been vaccinated with the Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus. The publication refers to the Russian Direct Investment Fund. The same statistics were announced on January 19 by the director of the Scientific Information Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Viral Infections Georgy Vikulov…
The official statistics of the COVID-19 headquarters, however, give figures one and a half times less. However, the difference may well be due to the relatively long “assimilation” of the vaccine, which is administered in two stages with a step of two weeks. The one who received the first injection, with a favorable development of events, receives immunity only after a month. And during this period of time, the threat of infection remains.
At the same time, against the backdrop of the recent scandal associated with the American vaccine Pfizer, which, according to the firm itself, turned out to be dangerous for the tested group of elderly people, the Sputnik vaccination is proceeding relatively calmly.
Caution during the testing of “Sputnik”, which was formulated by many media persons as “I will wait for what will happen”, began to move to the position “Ready to take risks, just not to be in quarantine.” More and more show business stars, politicians and opinion leaders are appearing among Russians who have already taken root.
According to the same “Komsomolskaya Pravda”, 53-year-old Valdis Pelsh has already given the injection, explaining his decision by saying that “Better to spend two hours of time and get vaccinated.” And he added that the procedure did not entail any discomfort: “I didn’t feel at all – neither a rise in temperature, nor headaches, although they warned of such a possibility. On the second vaccination he even joked: did they inject me with water? “
Meanwhile, the 60-year-old also decided to vaccinate Alexey Maklakovwho came to the vaccination station with a friend, 44 years old Edgard Zapashny… Dmitry Kharatyan, 61, and his wife also recently made the second component.
The fact that Sputnik V did not cause any serious changes in well-being was also reported by the 52-year-old Maxim Fadeev. 46-year-old Yana Rudkovskaya and her 38-year-old husband Evgeni Plushenko were vaccinated; 63-year-old TV presenter Svetlana Sorokina; 50 year old Marianna Maksimovskaya; 57-year-old Vladimir Mashkov and Alena Apina, 56.
But there are also stars among the antique avant-garde in the age category “65+”.
Leonid Yakubovich, at 75, decided to make a vaccine after dying from the consequences of his friend’s covid Boris Grachevsky… Another presenter, Dmitry Krylov, who is only a year younger than Yakubovich, should go for the second vaccination at the end of January.
But the record among the oldest celebrities was broken by the recently celebrated 85th anniversary Svetlana Druzhinina… The director and her husband the cameraman Anatoly Mukasey have undergone vaccination normally. Svetlana Sergeevna continued her daily hardening ritual three days after vaccination and commented on her condition after vaccination to Free Press:
– I had absolutely nothing, no changes. Everything is as it was and is – still alive. The vaccination took place in two stages: on the 9th and 30th they gave me injections – and I had no abnormalities. No temperature, no other.
In addition, in the fall of last year, messages about vaccinations appeared on the network:
– artist Yuri Stoyanov;
– Rodiona Gazmanova;
– Andrey Kozlov, stars of the program “What? Where? When?”;
– General Director of Rostec Corporation Sergey Chemezov;
– Chief Sanitary Doctor of Russia Anna Popova;
– Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova;
– journalist Alexei Pivovarov (at the end of November he still fell ill with coronavirus);
– Ministers Sergei Shoigu and Denis Manturov;
– Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin;
– LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
We also note that some State Duma deputies announced their desire to be vaccinated with the Russian vaccine a few days ago. Approximately 50 parliamentarians have already signed up for the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccination. State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin stated this.
