Ministry of Health of Crimea: vaccination against COVID-19 of elderly citizens is a chance to save lives
As Vladimir Meshcheryakov notes, in old age there are often comorbidities, such as sore joints, diabetes or cardiovascular disease, which is an additional argument in favor of immunization. The vaccination is carried out in a stable condition, not during an exacerbation of the disease, after consultation with the attending physician. If the patient receives any therapy for a long time, then before vaccination, you should contact your doctor so that, if necessary, the specialist adjusts the doses of the drugs taken. However, as a rule, the drug regimen does not change.
The chief freelance specialist in medical prevention emphasizes that the disappointing statistics of coronavirus deaths among the elderly who have not been immunized clearly indicate that older people should not be skeptical about the need for immunization. To date, in the Crimea against COVID-03 fully vaccinated 15 493 people older than 60 years. You can get immunized at stationary or mobile points, information about which is available on the website of the Ministry of Health of Crimea.
