WHY are people getting infected after covid vaccine!!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The reason behind getting infected even after taking Corona vaccine are a few.

1. After taking the first dose : The first dose presents antigens – proteins that stimulate the production of antibodies – to the immune system for the first time. Scientists call this priming the immune response. When antibodies are forming in our body, our IMMUNITY decreases.

2. For vaccines that require two doses, the second dose acts as a booster, ensuring the immune system develops a memory response to fight off the virus if it encounters it again.

3. People are being carefree and roaming as if this vaccine is 100%. It is a known fact that no vaccine can provide 100% protection, be it for any disease, and thus, breakthrough infections exist for all types of vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines are no exception.

4. As vaccines are rolling out and immunity is building, it is important to continue to follow all of the recommended measures that reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2. This includes physically distancing yourself from others; wearing a mask, especially in crowded and poorly ventilated settings; cleaning your hands frequently; covering any cough or sneeze in your bent elbow; and opening windows when indoors.

Herd Immunity

When someone is vaccinated, they are very likely to be protected against the targeted disease. But not everyone can be vaccinated. People with underlying health conditions that weaken their immune systems (such as cancer or HIV) or who have severe allergies to some vaccine components may not be able to get vaccinated with certain vaccines. These people can still be protected if they live in and amongst others who are vaccinated. When a lot of people in a community are vaccinated the pathogen has a hard time circulating because most of the people it encounters are immune. So the more that others are vaccinated, the less likely people who are unable to be protected by vaccines are at risk of even being exposed to the harmful pathogens. This is called herd immunity.

This is especially important for those people who not only can’t be vaccinated but may be more susceptible to the diseases we vaccinate against. No single vaccine provides 100% protection, and herd immunity does not provide full protection to those who cannot safely be vaccinated. But with herd immunity, these people will have substantial protection, thanks to those around them being vaccinated.

Vaccinating not only protects yourself, but also protects those in the community who are unable to be vaccinated. If you are able to, get vaccinated.

Quick Tip :

‘People who have been infected with the COVID-19 are being given Vitamin C through IV (Intravenous therapy) – that delivers fluids directly into a vein’, hence it’s recommended to take a additional dose of vitamin C.
