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.
