Everything you should know about the corona vaccine.

The raging pandemic has very successfully and efficiently managed to change the life as we knew it. The only chance at returning to normalcy appears to be through getting the corona vaccine. Scientists and doctors have worked tirelessly over the past year, hell-bent on their efforts to put forward a vaccine in as expedient a manner as possible. This is because the disease induces horrifying symptoms. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, dry cough and tiredness. Less common symptoms include aches and pains, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, rashes and discolorations on different parts of the body. Those who are struck more seriously have difficulty breathing, feel pain and pressure in the chest and may even suffer from loss of movement and/or speech.  

Why are some doctors in favor of the vaccine?

Protection Against COVID-19 

The most obvious and glaringly evident reason for getting the corona vaccine is protection against COVID-19. There is some level of ambiguity about the effectiveness of the vaccine, and for this discussing in detail with your family care physician would be recommended. 

A Safe Way to Build Protection

Other than being a disease which has life-threatening and incredibly serious complications, an added horror of the disease is that it is highly contagious. The corona vaccine is being widely advertised as a way out of the horrors of the pandemic by ensuring individuals are protected against it.  

Safe & Effective 

All vaccines are subjected to rigorous trials and tests, in order to ensure they are safe for human administration, and effective against the disease the vaccine is trying to protect against. Since, this particular vaccine too has undergone all required tests, and has been subjected to highest quality standards, suffice to say the vaccine is pretty safe. The vaccine itself contains proteins or at times, other biological substance that emulate the specifics of the vaccine. This helps to extract the desired immune response against the deadly virus, without actually contracting the virus itself. 

Apprehensions & Trepidations 

There is still research being conducted into the long term effects of the vaccine, to study how long it is able to provide protection against COVID-19. There are also studies taking place with the intention of boosting the current levels of effectiveness of the vaccine. 

Governments are making an effort to ensure as many people as possible get vaccinated at the earliest possible time through massive vaccination drives. However, large proportions of the population is resisting this effort by refusing to get registered and be administered with the shot. Perhaps the greatest trepidation springs from the fact that it has been developed at a timeline that is historically the most expedient and therefore side effects aren’t very well established. 

Your best bet at expert guidance about the corona vaccine would definitely be either your healthcare provider or family care physician. When it comes to health, no effort is too small. So gathering all the information possible about it such as benefits and possible side effects, is for sure an excellent idea. After all, health is wealth!
