It was stated that in the vaccination studies carried out against the corona virus in Turkey, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine will also be activated after the Sinovac and BioNTech vaccines. Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaşçı stated that the Sputnik V vaccine will be implemented within 2 weeks and said, “The protection rate of the Russian vaccine is very high, 97 percent.”
While vaccination efforts are accelerating in the fight against the pandemic in Turkey, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine will also be activated after China’s Sinovac and Germany’s BioNTech vaccines.
Health Minister Fahrettin Koca previously announced that 30 million doses of Spuntik V vaccine will be delivered to Turkey by the end of June.
Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Stating that the first batch of the Sputnik V vaccine arrived in Turkey, Savaşçı said, “The vaccine that entered our country on Monday was the Sputnik V vaccine. At the moment, we do not have any problems in terms of both the variety of vaccines and the amount of vaccine. The protection rate of the Russian vaccine is also very high, at a rate of 97 percent. “It creates immunity with a separate mechanism we call ‘adenovirus’. The investigations take 10-15. Since the vaccine came this week, the Sputnik vaccine will be put into practice within 2 weeks,” he said.
“THE ANTIBODY FORMATION RATE 97 PERCENT”
Assoc. Dr. Stating that the Sputnik V vaccine is administered in 65 countries, Savaşçı said, “All the data revealed that the antibody formation rate is 97 percent. A virus, adenovirus, which we know as the ‘postman’ is used in the mechanism of this vaccine. Here, different mechanisms are used to trigger antibody formation in the body. The technology is also a separate technology that has been applied before. Do not let the presence of a virus intimidate our people, it only uses it as a carrier. It is not possible for this mechanism to make people sick. It is pleasing that its effectiveness is high. The use of different adenovirus types in two doses causes an extra antibody density to be formed. I As a de Biontech vaccine volunteer, I will request to use the 3rd vaccine in the direction of the Sputnik vaccine, if it is deemed appropriate,” he said.
PAIN RELIEF AFTER VACCINE
Assoc. Dr. Savaşçı noted the following about whether people with penicillin allergy will be vaccinated:
“Those with allergies can get vaccinated with peace of mind. Pregnant women and nursing mothers after the first 3 months of pregnancy can have these vaccinations again with peace of mind. Let our people get the vaccine with confidence. There is no harm in taking a bath after vaccination. As long as they do not take large amounts of painkillers, it will not have a negative effect. ; but it should not be exaggerated because it can negatively affect the formation of antibodies.
It is important not to take painkillers in the first 3 days. If there is a very severe headache, muscle pain, of course, they should not suffer; They can take it, they should not take the amount exaggeratedly. Vaccines; it can cause nausea, arm, muscle pain, mild flu symptoms. The point to be noted here is; Everyone should act as cautiously as their own doctor after vaccination.”“DO NOT BELIEVE IN VACCINE LEGENDS”
