He noted that, as the director of the Gamaleya Center, “he will never allow his employee to work with this pathogen if he has a vaccine.” He explained this by the fact that he is responsible for his life and health and “understands well” that if such an employee is vaccinated, “he will be completely protected.”
At the same time, he added that vaccination against coronavirus may not be mandatory.
