Therefore, we see repeated illnesses, we see illnesses in those who have been vaccinated, ”said the Moscow Mayor.

That is, the immune status of a person, the level of immunity, in order to protect oneself from the Indian strain, it must be twice as high as compared to the Wuhan one. Twice. Therefore, we see repeated illnesses, we see illnesses in those who were vaccinated – there are not so many of them, but it is still felt that those who were vaccinated a long time ago, their status is falling, titers are falling, so many probably need revaccination , which we have already talked about, “- said Sergei Sobyanin.
