Sevastopol doctors say that over 95% of those vaccinated against influenza have a sufficient level of immunity
The influenza immunization campaign in Sevastopol started on September 1. As a rule, it lasts until the beginning of November — before this time it is advisable for everyone to get vaccinated and protect themselves from this dangerous disease.
The effect of the vaccine is extremely high — over 95% of people who have been immunized have a sufficient level of immunity. First of all, vaccination is needed to protect yourself from the serious consequences of the disease, because the flu itself is a serious infectious disease that is extremely difficult to tolerate and is dangerous precisely because of its consequences for the human body.– the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the chief freelance epidemiologist of the Department of Health Sergei Grygu.
This year, well-proven vaccines are used for vaccination: “Ultrix Quadri” — for children, pregnant women and people with chronic diseases, “Sovigripp” — for all other groups of the population. Despite the fact that the name of the vaccines does not change, they have a new antigenic composition, which is formed and updated annually in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Organization. The updated composition helps protect against virus strains that are expected to circulate in the new epidemiological season. Sergei Gryga notes that there is no need to be afraid of the flu vaccine.
The body’s reaction to the injection of the vaccine in the form of pain at the injection site, fever, slight chills, swelling at the injection site is a normal reaction. You need to understand that a foreign protein is introduced, and the human immune system must respond. How she does this is individual, there may be no reaction at all. The main thing is that these symptoms do not persist for more than three days. If it is longer than this period, then you need to consult a doctor at the clinic.explains the doctor.
You can get vaccinated not only at city clinics, but also at mobile vaccination points. They are located on Nakhimov Square, near the Orange shopping center and in the building of the Musson shopping center. You need to have your passport and SNILS with you. Not only Sevastopol residents, but also all citizens of the Russian Federation can get vaccinated if they have a compulsory health insurance policy.
