The Sinovac vaccine and the Biontech vaccine continue to be administered in Turkey. SBU Ankara Keçiören Training and Research Hospital Chief Physician Assoc. Dr. Davut Akduman, “an intensive vaccination work continues. During this time, we have been on the agenda as the country with the highest vaccination rate in the world. Vaccination is important. One of the most important weapons to get rid of the pandemic is vaccination.” said.
“ALL VACCINATIONS CURRENTLY ARE EFFECTIVE AGAINST MUTANTA”
Ankara University (AU) Faculty of Medicine Head of the Department of Infectious Diseases Prof. Dr. İsmail Balık, “The vaccines are not affected by this British mutant, which is good news. All current vaccines are also effective against this mutant amutant.” said.
Stating that vaccines are very effective in breaking the epidemic and rapidly reducing the number of cases in England and Israel, Balık continued his words as follows:
“The UK was the country with the highest number of cases in Europe until a short time ago, but it has been announced that there has been no death in London for three days. The epidemic quickly subsided there. In Israel, almost no cases have been observed. Why? Because, This was achieved with vaccination. They provided social immunity with the vaccine. If you vaccinate more than 60 percent of the population in epidemics, the epidemic will not be a problem for that country, since some of them will have acquired immunity because they naturally contracted the disease. By the end of June, a significant part of the population will have been vaccinated and we will have entered the autumn away from the epidemic.”
“OUR CITIZENS SHOULD GET WHICH VACCINE THEY HAVE”
Stating that citizens can choose one of the two vaccines, Balık said:
“As Ankara University, we participated in Phase 3 studies of both vaccines. Our citizens should have the vaccine they receive, which is very important. Because it has been clearly shown that no matter which vaccine is used, vaccines prevent severe illness and death. Only BioNTechBioNTech has not been performed in the UK. , Astra-ZenecaZeneca was also performed. It was observed that the death rates in the countries where the Sinovac-Sinovac vaccine we use were made decreased significantly. This data was also reflected in us, such that we no longer see severe cases over the age of 60 in Turkey. Currently, it is mostly 40-60 Therefore, we will definitely get the vaccine we find,” he said.
