Vaccination is important for acquiring immunity, so it should not be overlooked even during the coronavirus pandemic.
This was stated in an interview with immunologist Ukrinform, assistant professor of pediatric infectious diseases and pediatric immunology NMAPE them. P.L. Shupika Fedor Lapiy.
“Like the coronavirus, a person should take immunity seriously. Helping with vaccination should be tempered (in order to train the body’s resistance). I also deal with bad habits. Tobacco smokes immunity. We have to take care of all of this, ”said Lapiy.
According to him, support for vaccination should also help, because the infections against which there are effective vaccinations do not disappear.

“One of the American pediatricians, commenting on the issue of vaccinations during the pandemic, said: We still did not have enough measles outbreaks. Vaccination against influenza and pneumococcal infections is correct. Because there are elderly people, people at risk. Georgia has started vaccination against pneumococcal infections in the elderly. I hope that the Ukrainian oligarchs will build roads and schools and train the elderly not only in the worship of relics, but also in vaccination against pneumococcal infections, “said the immunologist.
