Adrian Marinescu knows when Romanians could be vaccinated with the third dose of vaccine. “Overweight people could have problems.”
Medical director of the “Victor Babeş” Institute, Bucharest, doctor Adrian
Marinescu is of the opinion that, starting with the autumn, Romanians will be able to be vaccinated with the third dose of anti-covid vaccine. Recently, Pfizer and BioNtech announced that they have developed a vaccine against the Delta variant of coronavirus and will soon test its effectiveness.
Adrian Marinescu knows when Romanians could be vaccinated with the third dose of vaccine
“It simply came to our notice then. I would make the following statement. With greater efficiency, because the current vaccine variants can be used with flying colors. It’s about increasing efficiency-related components and by the way, you know that
all the manufacturing companies, from the beginning said that, at some point, there will be an update that refers exactly to the new mutations.
Now we are talking about the Delta version that we are very interested in, about the impact. How likely is this dose to be taken anywhere in the world, including in Romania?
It is quite likely that this will happen in the fall. Why? Because we are talking about new variants and in addition we come with a greater stability related to immunity.
It wouldn’t necessarily be a dose issue, I’d think, how do we prepare for the worst situation and how?
we manage to stay balanced and calm, as I think we did throughout the pandemic, or so we should.
Let’s face it – the number of infections doesn’t matter. In the end, we are interested in whether there are severe cases that require hospitalization “, said Adrian Marinescu, according to Antena 3.
“Overweight people may have problems when the number of infections increases”
At the same time, Adrian Marinescu explained that, at the moment, the discussions about the side effects of the third dose are purely theoretical.
“Vaccine companies have taken into account a
vaccine update does not mean we use it for now. It’s up for discussion in early September. Unfortunately, the virus undergoes mutations, as does the Delta variant, and we need a vaccine that is significantly more effective, and then a third dose will be needed for a more difficult epidemiological episode.
(…) These things are theoretical. We are talking about side effects at the moment. It is out of the question to have side effects that cause us problems at the third dose. Here we are talking about the same thing. It is important to have a good effect on vulnerable people as well.
Overweight people may have problems when the number of infections increases, “said the doctor.
As for the mandatory vaccination, Adrian Marinescu said that he does not think that the problem will arise.
“Fortunately, immunity is also obtained by going through the disease. At least half of Romanians have immunity, either from going through the disease or from vaccination, and this means that they will be protected. The most important immunity is at the level of cells, not at the level of antibodies. We are also protected from lymphocytes “, said Adrian Marinescu, according to him RomaniaTV.
