Are you ready for a second shot of the COVID19 vaccine?

Get ready for the second dose of the COVID19 vaccine. Let’s defeat the coronavirus infection to spread. People are getting vaccinated against the coronavirus to protect their immunity.

COVID19 vaccine is finally here this year. With rolling out vaccines, many people worldwide are going ahead and immunizing themselves. The COVID19 vaccine wait is over. No matter how much we want to cover our faces and wash our hands frequently, we need a vaccine to fight this pandemic. With this vaccination drive, you should be aware of the results, efficacy, side effects, and precautions this year 2021 which is very essential for every one of us. The vaccines are released after checking the efficacy with correct phase clinical trials. Before taking a vaccine, one should be aware of it. 

Efficacy of the vaccine

The first question that crops up in people’s minds is whether the vaccine is safe. Let’s explore vaccines in detail. The main objective of the COVID19 vaccine is to ensure safety and maximum efficacy. Safety is indeed a priority of the vaccine. All the vaccines go under testing to test the effectiveness and safety. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set up standards to know about vaccine safety. According to the National Institute of Health, the vaccines should pass through 4 phases before it's made available to the public. So you can rest assured about the efficacy of the vaccine. 

Importance of the second dose of the vaccine. 

Three out of 4 eligible health workers in India have not taken the scheduled second dose of the COVID19 vaccine. The second drive of the COVID19 vaccination began on the 13th of Feb 2021. The vaccination process is incomplete till both the doses of COVID19 vaccines are taken. This trend of the vaccine has made everyone worried about the outcome of the vaccination drive. Only 26 % of healthcare workers scheduled to take the second jab of COVID19 vaccine by Feb 15th, 2021 evening turned up. Such a low turnout for the 2 nd dose of vaccine is a real cause of concern. This reluctance is present not only among the health care workers but also among the general public.  

The gap between the first and second dose of vaccine

According to the Vaccination drive in India, the prescribed interval between 2 doses of Covishield COVID19 vaccine is 28 days. While Indians have become vaccinated and are fully cooperating with the vaccination drive to help control the spread of coronavirus. There is a question that ticks every person’s mind about the significance of the 28-day gap between two doses. 

Protect your immunity against coronavirus vaccine 

One needs to understand the importance of vaccination.COVID19 vaccine is a safer way to build protection and provide a shield to your immune system. Remember, if you get sick with the coronavirus infection then you can spread the infection among your family members, friends, and community. The vaccines help to build immunity and are very important in controlling the spread of coronavirus infection. The gap of 28 days between two vaccines helps build antibodies which will activate the antibodies in your system to boost your defensive mechanism of the body. 

PM Modi gets the second dose of the COVID19 vaccine

“If eligible for the vaccine, getting your second shot soon” PM Modi takes a second dose of vaccine. An efficacious vaccine is a must for curbing the mortality and morbidity of the coronavirus infection. Vaccination is among the few ways we have to defeat the virus. PM Narendra Modi received the 2nd dose of coronavirus in the month of March 2021. India’s vaccination drive against the coronavirus started on 16 th January 2021 for the first jab of the vaccine. The second phase of the vaccination started on March 1st with people above 60 years of age. On April 1st, all above 45 years were eligible to get immunized. Two vaccines - Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin and Serum Institutes Covishield are being used with more than 9 crore doses administered till now.
