After vaccination, all volunteers are expected to remain in isolation in a hospital for 28 days. Doctors will monitor their health status, the absence of adverse reactions and take blood tests — including to assess the immunogenicity of the vaccine.

According to various parameters, they will monitor the formation of the immune response.
Research doctors will monitor the health status of volunteers for six months after discharge from the hospital, the ministry said. (IANS)
