Prof. Dr. Kemalettin Aydın: there are those over the age of 65 who resist vaccination – health news

Health Sciences University Vice Rector, Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Prof. Dr. Kemalettin Aydinmade an assessment regarding the increase in Istanbul, one of the top 5 provinces with the highest number of cases in the last week.

Prof. Dr. Aydin, despite the increase in cases, saying they saw a process that closure of the cities, “almost 1 in 4 intensity of the tsunami period in November, maybe the past month by increased 100 per cent of those requesting health care. But at the moment, succeed in Turkey in November has given the health service works at a capacity of 1 in 4, “he said.


Prof. Dr. Aydın stated that the architectural structure of some cities is also effective in the increase of cases, “We have such cities that there are family apartments with a combined architecture of 1 kilometer in Istanbul with 4-5 floors and two apartments. When you impose a curfew here, all the families in these buildings at the weekend return to the ‘apartment-family’ position. In this season, instead of immobilizing 10 flats in a 5-storey apartment in Istanbul Sultangazi, Bayrampaşa at the weekend, I see it more valuable in terms of the epidemic, walking distantly and with masks near a park, square, sidewalk, by the sea. , is the most contaminated with infected domestic explains in Turkey. it is within the family that the apartment through the streets restrictions I draw attention. The contamination in a single apartment is something else, I think that the contamination of 10 apartments going to each other in the weekend restriction is much more.


Prof. Dr. Aydın said that people aged 65 and over were hesitating to get vaccinated in Istanbul. Prof. Dr. Aydın said, “The vaccine is very valuable, especially recently it is said that ‘the disease is a little bit too much, but the virus does not make it very seriously sick.’ Actually, it is important that the number of those who have the second dose vaccines over the age of 65 is significant. The number of those who have the second dose vaccines is 5 million 100 thousand. 4 million of them are over 65 years old, they do not get sick significantly when they are immunized; such a picture is very valuable. We know numerically that we have aunts and mothers who do not get the vaccine in this group, and there are those who are over 65 years of age, who resist vaccination even though the state is looking for it. It is significantly fatal at an advanced age, and severe and serious complications in those who have had the vaccine. We need to share that he did not suffer from ascites. Sometimes you find solutions by rejecting information you do not know. Probably, our elders do not follow the subject very much and try not to do it. I do not base the resistance to vaccination on a very healthy basis. Our elders should have their vaccinations “he said.


Prof. Dr. Aydin, about the mutant virus, “we are talking about the rapid spread of mutants may be strains dominate in the next 1-2 months, I think more could be faced with a human virus. ‘Herd immunity’ we call disease passing immunity that rate in Turkey in our province, many towards the June percent in metropolitan areas It will be over 50. There is a possibility that this will significantly reduce the rate of spread of the epidemic.
