Already in September or October Russia should start a coronavirus vaccination program. Doctor of Medical Sciences and immunologist Vladislav Zhemchugov explained what can and cannot be done before being vaccinated against COVID-19.

The restrictions before getting the coronavirus vaccine are similar to those that should be followed before getting the flu shot. According to him, the vaccination is unacceptable if the person is not healthy - at temperatures exceeding 37 degrees, the drug will not be administered, or they have consumed alcohol the day before.

- Before vaccination, you definitely should not drink strong alcohol. However, weak too. The vaccine can react to alcohol in such a way that the person will not be well. I think that 10-12 hours or even a day before vaccination you shouldn't drink. The time depends on how the liver works in a person, - said Zhemchugov in an interview with Sputnik radio.

The expert advised to ask questions about the vaccine and come to the treatment room for vaccination already prepared, and also "not be shy and demand that everything is as it should be".

- When you come to the office for vaccination, you have to be with open eyes and not be ashamed of anything. You need to ask the expiration date of the vaccine, you need to look at the temperature in the refrigerator where it is stored. In the refrigerator, it should not be higher than plus four degrees. You also need to pay attention to whether the doctor is wearing gloves, to check whether he accurately uses a disposable syringe. And in general, a doctor, and not just a nurse, should do the vaccination, '' the immunologist noted, adding that the rules for vaccination and other information about vaccination can be read on the websites of Rospotrebnadzor and the Ministry of Health.

Let us recall that the first batch of the world's first vaccine against coronavirus was produced in Russia. At the same time, the world community is not eager to purchase a Russian drug, considering that 38 test subjects are too few to be confident in the safety of the drug.

At the same time, Mexico expressed its desire to join the trials of the Russian vaccine, RIA Novosti reports. This was stated by the head of the Mexican Foreign Ministry, Marcelo Ebrard, after a meeting with Russian Ambassador Victor Coronelli.
