Turkish doctor develops antibodies after 1st shot of COVID-19 vaccine

A Turkish doctor in Turkey’s Diyarbakir province developed antibodies after getting the first shot of Sinovac’s CoronaVac vaccine against COVID-19.

Dicle University Medical Faculty Child Health and Diseases Specialist Assoc. Dr. İlyas Yolbaş volunteered for a COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial in Diyarbakir.

“There were no side effects after the vaccination. I recommend everyone who hasn’t been infected with the virus and does not want to be infected to get it,” he said on his Instagram account.

Yolbaş developed antibodies 3 weeks after he was vaccinated.

Turkey will administer inactive COVID-19 vaccines in two doses, 28 days apart, the country’s health minister said last week.

Health care staff and nursing homes will be the first to receive the vaccines, Fahrettin Koca wrote in a statement on Twitter after a virtual meeting of the Coronavirus Scientific Advisory Board.

He added that authorities are planning to administer vaccines at family health centers and public, private and university hospitals.
