Currently there is been over 17millions cases of Covid-19 all over world. Here I’m going to talk about Covid-19 vaccine results, side effects, what is vaccine, does everyone required vaccine? Price and many more topics related to covid-19 .
WHAT IS COVID VACCINE?
Covid vaccine has been injected into the dead or inactive particles of covid virus in our body. So our body get power to fight against the virus inside of our body. And body produces antibodies in response to the virus. So it can’t harm our body.
IS THE COVID VACCINE SAFE?
No doubt that this vaccine is been created in very small period of time. Not much research on the vaccine has done. As you all know normal vaccine takes longer time to generate.
But a good amount people were enrolled in this trial so it is believed to be 90-95% safe on people. There are two things emphasize before using any vaccine- (a). Is it efficient? Means if we get this vaccine then will it work nicely. Will it provide immunity against the virus or not. (b). Is it safe? The main question comes in mind that is vaccine is been checked it’s safety?
Yes, after trying on many people the result is it is working 90-95% on human body. And it is absolutely safe.
But People who are allergic to the vaccine are given the vaccine during later stages OR to avoid the vaccine. Normally this vaccine has minor side effects like Rashes, itching skin, low grade fever in very less cases.
So in total safety profile has been checked. Then only it will get a introduction.
Different international companies are producing different vaccines. But which vaccine is more efficacy that is not been proved by head on trial. The vaccine produced in India that has 75-90% afficacy.
That means if we try on 100 people it will work on 75-90 people. And will work on them. Normally it’s injects in 2 shots. After 1st shot have to wait for 3-4 weeks for 2nd shot. Normally 2nd shot should be completed in 28 days from 1st shot.
After 14 days of that 2nd shot have to check the antibody level in body so you can understand that it’s ready to fight with covid or not.
WHO ALL WILL SHOULD GET VACCINE?
As we all know that in short time period we have made the covid-19 vaccine available and number of people who have to be vaccinated are more. That’s why government has segregate in certain level and introduced the vaccine.
First will come the (a.)Front Line Workers then (b.) Healthcare Workers (who all are most important, day and night they deal with patients). (C.) Then there are elderly people with low immunity, means old people with low immunity because of less appetite or other health problem.
Government has given priority for those who suffering from serious health problems like diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, cancer etc. But practically if you will see then it’s not possible to vaccinate whole country with such less time.
So they are keeping you under safety precautions that need to be taken : (a) wearing a mask in public. (b) maintaining social distancing. (c) Other preventive measures.
WHAT IS ‘HERD’ IMMUNITY? DOES EVERYBODY NEED TO GET VACCINATED?
Vaccination break the chain of disease transmission. If the person is maintaining social distancing and wearing mask the he/she is not getting the disease then he/she won’t spread also.
So that is called HERD immunity. If 60-70% population gets vaccine then the chances of the spread of infection get reduce.
WHAT IS HERD IMMUNITY DEVELOPS?
If people are not getting vaccine they can survive safely by this HERD immunity.
WILL THE VACCINE BE ABLE TO CONTAIN THE PANDEMIC?
* Efficacy of the Vaccine Depends Upon: 1. How readily it is available. 2. How many people will get vaccinated.
In general none of the Vaccine is 100% effective. So to control the pandemic Vaccine is one of the tool. Rest of the majors we have to stay with them.
WILL THE COVID VACCINE GIVE LIFELONG IMMUNITY?
Now everyone has a query that does covid vaccine give lifelong immunity or not. Now the virus is also changing strains. But definitely COVID-19 Vaccine would not give lifelong immunity. It may last for n year. Some studies dasays that it lasts for 9 months.
WHAT IS THE COST OF COVID VACCINE?
Vaccine cost is another important thing after it’s available. Is this Vaccine provided by Government free of cost? I’ve mention in previous paragraph you that there are 2 shots which is around Rs. 1000.
We can see there are many cases of reinfection of covid 19 even after getting treatment. But The antibodies are there in body those will get weak after few weeks.
So Vaccination is very important because it makes your immunity system stronger and there are less chances of reinfection.
