The coronavirus vaccine may not be suitable for people with primary immunodeficiencies, said Alexander Karaulov, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, head of the Department of Clinical Immunology and Allergology at Sechenov University.
According to him, autoimmune, rheumatological and oncological diseases are not contraindications, reports RT. Karaulov added that, first of all, scientists are guided by the instructions of the Ministry of Health after the third phase of vaccine research.
He said that the study of a new coronavirus is an "endless process" associated with improving diagnosis and treatment.
As Karaulov explained, it is no coincidence that the Russian Ministry of Health has already issued eight temporary guidelines for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of coronavirus infection. About 100 vaccines are being developed around the world, he said.
Earlier, the Ministry of Health called the introduction of mandatory vaccination against coronavirus as a condition for international travel as a reasonable measure.
