According to radio Sputnik, doctor of medical sciences, immunologist, specialist in especially dangerous infections Vladislav Zhemchugov told reporters about common myths regarding immunity to dangerous infections.

So, the specialist urged not to measure the antibody titer to SARS-CoV-2 in the body immediately after vaccination or illness.

“There is no point in doing this. It will not affect in any way, there is an immune response, there is still protection, and it cannot be strengthened in any way … Even after reducing the number of antibodies, memory cells remain in the body, which, upon repeated contact with the virus, are sharply activated, and within two days, and not within three weeks, as in the first contact, “- assured Zhemchugov.
