Vaccine: What Charalambos Gogos said about the third dose
In the third installment, too, there will be a hierarchy, stressed the professor and member of the Infectious Diseases Committee to SKAI, Charalambos GogosHe noted that it will be preceded by those over 60 who have a lower response and those who are at high risk. He estimated that both of these groups they will probably be vaccinated at the same time.
Referring to the course of the pandemic, Gogos noted that at the moment there is a relief in the health system in terms of imports and admissions to ICUs, but stressed that we have many deaths. He noted that after the summer, when there was relaxation, scientists went up to make the situation worse.
According to Mr. Gogos, immunity from vaccination amounts to about 60% and together with the natural immunity of those who have been ill, it probably reaches 70%. He stressed, among other things, that a difficult period is coming with closed spaces and open schools. Asked about the vaccines, he said that there are pockets anticoagulants everywhere and that in the church the problem is bigger because it is possible to influence some fellow human beings who are religious.

Vasilakopoulos: “We lose a KTEL bus every day”
For his part, the professor of Pulmonology, Intensive Care of EKPA Theodoros Vasilakopoulos, speaking to Mega stressed: “We lose a KTEL bus every day. If every day a bus fell on the cliff and 30-40-50 people were killed, we would not make it clear to society that we have to do something with road safety. We must do the same now. “
“In our country, at vaccines we are 10% below the European average, and 20% below the countries of the European South. I do not see any serious reason that the acceptance of vaccines here is 20% lower than in other countries South“, Explained Mr. Vasilakopoulos.
Referring to their contradictions scientists Mr. Vasilakopoulos stressed that “people need to understand that science is advancing with experiment. There is tremendous new knowledge that could lead a scientist to do other things at the beginning of the pandemic, and differently now. I do not know why we went worse in Greece. It is a combination of things (…) “We are special people. We know everything and we have all become doctors. “Now we have 10 new Greek doctors”, added Mr. Vasilakopoulos.
“The pandemic strikes all those who are not vaccinated, and the same goes for children. I predict that if as a society, either by persuasion or compulsion, we do not increase vaccination rates too much, we will ask for very difficult days until Christmas. “What happened in the nursing homes, that the news of the vaccinated went to 90% from 45% due to obligation, shows that the obligation can help”, said Mr. Vasilakopoulos about what we should expect from now on.
