Covid-19 cases are increasing in the world and it is getting hard for countries now to make everyone vaccinated fast. So here are answers to some common questions.
1. Understand the Vaccine
Vaccine are made from the same germ or a part of that germ which is responsible for the disease.
When you get a dose of vaccine, virus is injected in your body and with that our immune system understands it and starts to make antibodies.
With this procedure vaccine work and make u immune from virus.
2. Do we have to Get Vaccinated?
Some of you might be unsure about it but Covid vaccine protects you to an extent from which chances of severe illness and death reduces.
Your immunity will help you to fight from the virus if exposed and also protects the people around you whom you can infect. Vaccines are not effective to prevent virus’ spread till when we won’t develop herd immunity.
(Herd Immunity- when the maximum part of population gets immune from any contagious disease then indirectly it protects those whom don’t have immunity or antibodies)
This indirect protection reduces the spread of virus and protects the community. Vaccination is the safest and effective approach against any virus.
In this fight of corona virus, the day till we won’t get vaccinated, we won’t be completely safe and herd immunity won’t get achieved.
