Now, Covid -19 Vaccinations are ready in India, so let’s know the accurate vaccine information about it.
Where do I get authentic information about Covid -19 Vaccinations?
It is difficult to trust which sources of information are accurate. Know more about finding credible vaccine information.
Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?
No. The authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in India do not contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. So, a COVID-19 vaccine can’t make you sick with COVID-19.
Many types of vaccines are developing. All of them work on our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes, this process can cause symptoms like fever and it is normal and a sign of your body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.
It generally takes for the body to build immunity after vaccination. This means a person may be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and still gets sick. It is indicated that the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
Will I test positive for COVID-19 on a viral test after getting a COVID-19 vaccine?
No, the authorized and recommended vaccines or the other COVID-19 vaccines currently in clinical trials in India cannot cause someone to test positive on viral tests, which are used to see if you have a current infection.
If your body develops an immune response – the goal of vaccination – there is a chance you can get a positive test on some antibody tests that show you had a previous infection and that you may have some level of protection against the virus. Currently, the Experts are observing the fact how COVID-19 vaccination involves antibody testing results.
If I have already suffered from COVID-19 and recovered, do I still require to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine?
Yes, You need to be vaccinated even after you already had COVID-19. Why because the experts are not yet sure how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19.
Will a COVID-19 vaccination protect me from getting sick with COVID-19?
Yes, a COVID-19 vaccination protects you from getting sick with the disease because this vaccination works by teaching your immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19, and this protects you from getting sick with COVID-19.
Will a COVID-19 vaccine change my DNA?
No, a COVID-19 vaccine does not change or interfere with your DNA anyway. This vaccine does not enter the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA is kept. That means a COVID-19 vaccine never affects your DNA. These vaccines work with the body’s natural defenses to safely develop immunity to disease and making antibodies is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies.
Is it safe for me to get a COVID-19 vaccine if I would like to have a baby one day?
Yes, It is safe and you can get pregnant in the future if you receive the COVID-19 vaccine now.
As per current information, experts believe that COVID-19 vaccines are unlikely to pose a risk to a person trying to become pregnant in the short or long term. Scientists study every vaccine carefully for side effects immediately and for years afterward. The COVID-19 vaccines are being studied carefully now and will be studied for many years, similar to other vaccines.
A COVID-19 vaccine is just like other vaccines which work by teaching our bodies to develop antibodies to fight against the virus that causes COVID-19, to prevent future illness. There is currently no such evidence that the COVID-19 vaccination causes any harm with pregnancy, including the development of the placenta.
