Protocol of COVID revaccination for teenagers to be same as for adults - expert

   MOSCOW, Nov 25, 2021 (BSS/TASS) - The protocol of COVID revaccination of
adolescents needs to be studied but most probably it will be the same as for
adults, Alexander Gintsburg, director of the Gamaleya National Research
Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology, the vaccine developer, told TASS on
Thursday.

   "It needs to be looked at. Today, we need to vaccinate then and then think
how often they should be revaccinated. Most probably, there will be no
difference with adults," he said.

   According to the Russian health ministry, emergency vaccination geared to
reach the herd immunity means that revaccination is to be done in six months
after either vaccination or recovery. Routine vaccination envisages re-
immunization once a year.

   Gintsburg's deputy, Denis Logunov, said on Wednesday that the coronavirus
vaccine for adolescents has been registered in Russia.
