According to scientists, vaccines against coronavirus will not be able to stop the development of a pandemic. At least, the first samples that appeared on the market could not cope with it.

According to the agency Bloomberg, several experts at once expressed the opinion that the first vaccines will be only of limited action. Because of this, they cannot stop the pandemic. According to experts, at the first stage it is most likely that the vaccine will protect only from the severe course of the coronavirus, and not from the infection itself.

Scientists are based on the fact that even ready-made vaccines that have been used for a long time do not give a 100% guarantee against infection. For example, 3% of people who were vaccinated against measles still got it and were able to infect others. With coronavirus, especially in conditions where authorities are trying to release vaccines as early as possible, this is most likely. And from the main actions that the new remedy will be aimed at, it will be chosen to minimize the serious consequences, and not the exclusion of infection.

In Russia coronavirus vaccination could start this fall. Tests of the drug have already started: the RF Ministry of Defense announced that 50 volunteers will take part in the tests. The first vaccinations will be given to people at risk: doctors, cashiers and others.
