MOSCOW, September 15./TASS/. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday that he did not know whether President Vladimir Putin had already been revaccinated against coronavirus. He reiterated, however, that the president’s antibody titers remained high.
"I know nothing about his being revaccinated. In this case, I just reiterate his own words about having high titers," Peskov said when asked about medics’ recommendations for the president and whether he would be revaccinated.
Peskov also reminded the journalists that specialists were divided over the need for a booster jab. "You know about recommendations from our Health Ministry for revaccination, but there are also alternative points of view, including a recent article from American specialists, if I am not mistaken. They said in The Lancet that they had questioned the necessity of the constant revaccination of the population," Peskov added.
"In any case, these points of view are certainly taken into consideration by the specialists who are engaged in ensuring the epidemiological safety of the head of state among other issues and are doing all that is needed in this situation," he pledged.
The Lancet published an article citing the opinion of WHO scientific experts who urged all countries of the world to give up on the national programs of revaccination against COVID-19 and send spare vaccines to countries where the share of the vaccinated people remained very low.
