Covid-19 Vaccine

Covid-19 vaccine development has probably become the most expected event of 2020. Here is what you need to know about it.

What is a Covid-19 vaccine?

A COVID‑19 vaccine is a vaccine intended to provide immunity against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‑CoV‑2), the virus that has been causing coronavirus disease 2019.

Is the vaccine safe?

Any COVID-19 vaccine that is approved must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks. So far, millions of people around the World have been given the vaccine and reports of serious side effects have been exceedingly rare.

How is the vaccine given?

It is an injection of 2 doses given into your upper arm: 1st dose- then in 3-12 weeks after the first dose should be given the second dose of the same vaccine.

Who should get the vaccine?

According to the World Health Organization, the COVID-19 vaccines are safe for most people aged 18 years and older, including those with pre-existing conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, pulmonary, liver and kidney disease, as well as chronic infections that are stable and controlled.

If you have a compromised immune system, are pregnant or nursing your baby, have a history of severe allergies – you should discuss the benefits and risks with a healthcare professional before you have the vaccination.

How effective is the vaccine?

The 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should give you good protection from 3 or 4 weeks after you have had it, but for a longer lasting protection you need to have the 2 doses of the vaccine.

Although being vaccinated, there is still a chance of getting or spreading Covid-19 virus. That is why it is important to keep following the main safety measures such as social distancing and wearing a mask in public indoor spaces.
