A US scientist has named the age limit for COVID-19 vaccination. According to her, after 80, the state of human immunity becomes critically important.

Edition "Lenta.ru" With reference to Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor of the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University (USA), Chief Researcher of the Medical Genetic Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Anchu Baranov, reports that the age limit for receiving vaccination against coronavirus infection is 80-85 years. In this age range, vaccination is still indicated, but subject to careful examination of the general health and immunity of the vaccine candidate. For those who are over 85 years old, according to the scientist, there is no point in getting vaccinated.

Baranova noted that every year the human immune system is becoming weaker, and vaccine trials were limited to patients aged 65 plus. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to predict how the body of an 80-year-old person will behave.

The concern of doctors and scientists with the problem of vaccination of elderly people has exacerbated after reports that in Norway, after vaccinations with a drug from Pfizer died 23 people... Moreover, among the dead were elderly people over 80 years old with weakened immunity. Registered similar cases in Estonia, and in Germany. However, according to experts, it cannot yet be concluded that reports of deaths among those who received the vaccine in the EU countries are directly related to this vaccination.
