No side effects were found after using a nasal coronavirus vaccine. This was stated by the director of the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology. N.F. Gamalei Alexander Gunzburg, reports TASS.
“So far we have not seen any side effects with the nasal vaccine. The effectiveness will need to be checked, ”said Gunzburg.
In response to the question whether such a vaccine could be dangerous for people with allergies, the scientist noted that this is possible with any drug at the stage of exacerbation of the disease. “When there is no aggravation, please use it, there are no restrictions,” he added.
Gunzburg allowed “sterile immunity” in vaccinated against COVID nasally
The nasal vaccine is the second component of Sputnik V sprayed into the nose. Gunzburg previously said that the drug could not replace an injectable vaccine, so it could be used for additional protection. According to the scientist, the nasal vaccine will create another obstacle to the penetration of SARS-CoV-2 into the body, namely, it will provide protection at the level of the nasopharynx – “at the level of the entrance gate” of coronavirus infection.
