MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 02nd August, 2021) Vaccination against the coronavirus protects against post-COVID conditions if a person does get infected after getting a shot after all, infectious disease expert Evgeny Timakov told Sputnik.
"An analysis of the situation shows that there aren't any people who have been vaccinated in rehabilitation centers, so, according to preliminary scientific data, the available vaccine[s] protects from the post-COVID syndrome," Timakov said.
Timakov said that although a vaccinated individual can still shed the virus when infected, the amount is significantly lower than that shed by an unvaccinated person with COVID-19, moreover, the virus is less active and does not mutate.
