‘Unscientific and unnecessary’ explanation for antibody testing after vaccination

Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaşçı said that having an antibody test after the coronavirus vaccine is an unscientific and unnecessary practice. “Let’s just get the vaccine and try to protect ourselves without leaving the measures,” said the warrior.

Assoc. Dr. Ümit Savaşçı stated in his statement that everyone who had coronavirus vaccine, especially healthcare workers, was trying to have an antibody test. Assoc. Dr. Warrior, “This is a completely unscientific and unnecessary practice. Our people should not be looking for antibodies and tests by saying ‘my antibody is 3, yours is 5, does it protect or not? After the first vaccination, there were healthcare workers who got very uncomfortable because we work in a very busy environment. Therefore, they should not get the wrong thought such as ‘my antibody is high, I should go to every environment, I should go to my entertainment, I should not wear my mask.’ I had the BioNTech vaccine, I did not have my antibody checked, even though I think it protects my mask, I never disrupt my distance, I wear a mask in every environment ” he spoke.


Assoc. Dr. The warrior said that after the coronavirus vaccine, there were those who thought they got vaccine-induced virus, that such a thing is not possible. Assoc. Dr. The warrior said, “We do not have citizens who have coronavirus due to the vaccine, and this is misunderstood. None of these are live vaccines. There is no contagion of any coronavirus microbes related to the vaccine; They are inactive vaccines, vaccines that contain particles that do not contain any live virus. Therefore, the vaccinated person does not get the virus because of the vaccine; It may be possible to catch a virus as soon as it is removed.
