Vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency are safe, said virus researcher Miklós Rusvai. However, the expert indicated that it would be necessary to wear the mask “until herd immunity is achieved”.
Among the coronavirus vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines arrived in Hungary on Tuesday, he said: their active ingredient is essentially the same, differing in their other ingredients, preservatives, stabilizers. That’s why Pfizer is more sensitive, while Moderna is slightly more resilient, the latter requires only cooling to minus 20 degrees Celsius. Another difference is that the vaccination of Pfizer should be repeated after three weeks and that of Moderna after four weeks. However, both provide protection approximately one week after the second vaccination.
Miklós Rusvai highlighted: In all cases, vaccines protect against the development of the disease and its severe, even fatal, course.. It does not always protect one hundred percent from infection. The infection can enter the airways, but vaccinated people have a lower rate of virus production than non-vaccinated people, so the chance of passing on the infection is lower.
According to the virus researcher, it is important to have a 60-70 percent vaccination, and in addition, dry warm weather in summer can reduce the spread of the virus. At the same time, Miklós Rusvai drew attention to the fact that it will be necessary to wear the mask “until herd immunity is achieved”. He hopes it will no longer be needed in the fall. He noted, however, that the mask also protects against respiratory diseases and influenza, so it may be recommended to wear it in autumn and winter.
