COVID-19: Sputnik V, Nasal vaccine likely to ensure full protection – Research

Vaccination with Russia’s Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, followed by revaccination with a nasal vaccine, is likely to provide complete protection against COVID-19 infection.

However, this has yet to be studied in clinical trials, Alexander Gintsburg, director of the National Epidemiology and Microbiology Research Center in Gamaleya, told Sputnik.

“We assume, although this will need to be investigated in clinical trials.

“Such immunity will be sterile, that is, the vaccinated person will not only have humoral immunity, but also mucosal immunity at the portal of entry,” Gintsburg said.
