Scientific Committee Member Tezer has announced!

Scientific Committee Member Tezer has announced! Those with Covid-19 may not need to be vaccinated. Member of the Ministry of Health Coronavirus Scientific Committee and Gazi University Pediatric Infectious Diseases Specialist. Dr. Hasan Tezer said that after the first dose of the vaccine, the immune response was stimulated in some way. Prof. Dr. Stating that the main stimulation after vaccination reached the maximum level 10 days after the second dose, Tezer said, “That’s why it is not a very correct approach to walk around without a mask because I had the vaccine.

Even if the person is vaccinated, he has to wear a mask. There should not be a perception that ‘we will remove the mask’. We will continue to wear masks. As long as the virus continues to circulate, we will continue to wear masks in 2021. We will not take off our masks saying ‘I was vaccinated, my immune response is strong, and the antibody response is very good’. “We will pay attention not only to masks, but to our social distance, hand hygiene and not to come together in crowded areas.”


Prof. Dr. Tezer stated that if the person is vaccinated without knowing that he / she has the disease, there will be no harmful situation, and said, “The coronavirus vaccine will begin to be administered in stages in the coming days. If a person has an immune response after Covid-19, vaccination may not be necessary. The Minister of Health also announced that those who have had the disease within 6 months will not be vaccinated.

You have had the disease, after 6 months your immune and antibody response may decrease, we know that. You can get vaccinated by looking at the status of the person’s immune response at that time. In addition, we know that when people get sick for the 2nd or 3rd time, their immune systems are overstimulated. This is true for all viruses. The more intense you take, the more severe the disease can be. Your contact amount and duration are other factors that also affect your illness. “
