Receiving a booster dose of vaccination leads to an extension of the certificate by 270 days, Sergey Kuzin explained.

According to him, now all procedures are being worked out technically.
“Most likely, starting from January 15, there will be a final model of how certificates in Dyn will be extended. There is a technical possibility: the validity period will be extended by reissuing the certificate,” Kuzin said.
He explained that an additional dose of the vaccine does not extend the validity of the certificate. According to Kuzin, the person actually received three doses, but his level of immune defense is the same as that of an ordinary healthy person after two doses of the vaccine.
