Doctor, vaccinologist, head of one of the Moscow medical centers Yevgeny Timakov told kp.ru about the method of protecting unvaccinated people.
According to him, health can be maintained by following the principle of the so-called “cocoon vaccination”.
– The principle of creating a safe cocoon of vaccinated people around a vulnerable person is the same collective immunity, only in a small cell of society, in a family. According to this principle, those family members who can do it are vaccinated, and thus protect those who cannot do it, the expert explained.
The doctor added that this will help minimize the risks of infection for those for whom vaccination is contraindicated for health reasons.
Timakov explained that by creating a “cocoon vaccination”, it is possible to protect against covid-19 people who cannot be vaccinated due to an exacerbation of a chronic disease, as well as those who are taking immunosuppressive therapy.
