The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation has updated the temporary list of guidelines for vaccination against COVID-19 and included a nasal vaccine in it. This was reported on the agency's website.
«The list of vaccines has been updated taking into account the release of new drugs and vaccines with an additional route of administration – intranasal,” the message says.
The updated version of the recommendations notes that when deciding on the vaccination of children with primary immunodeficiency, additional studies of the immune status are not required in connection with the verification of the diagnosis.
In addition, organic lesions of the nervous system in minors are not a contraindication to vaccination against coronavirus. At the same time, children over 12 years of age, who are at high risk of a severe course of the disease, must be vaccinated as a priority.
In April, the director of the center named after. Gamalei Alexander Gintsburg spoke about plans to study a nasal vaccine against coronavirus with the participation of children.
Earlier WHO representative in Russia Melita Vujnovich allowed an increase in the incidence in the Russian Federation this year.
