HEALTH TIPS : Coping with Corona - Why are people who have got vaccinations also getting infection? The main reason for this came out
For more than a year and a half, there has been talking of getting vaccination everywhere to avoid the infection of corona that continues across the world. However, recent reports suggest that people who have taken both doses of the vaccine are also vulnerable to the infection. In such a situation, a question remains constantly in the minds of the people that why are those who get the vaccine getting corona infection, and if people are getting infected then what is the benefit of getting the vaccination?
Health experts say that people getting infected even after vaccination is definitely a matter of concern, for this new variant of corona can be considered as the main factor. Newer variants like Delta of Corona are becoming successful in easily dodging the immunity built up in the body, which is why such cases are coming up. So can a vaccine not be considered protective against such complications? Is there any difference between people who are vaccinated and those who do not? Let us know about this in detail in the next slides.
Delta variant outbreak continues
Health experts say, talk about the current time or the second wave in India, cases of infection are being seen more in those places where the outbreak of the delta variant is more. In such a situation, cases of infection are also being seen in people who have been vaccinated. Statistics show that cases of infection are being seen in people who have only one dose of the vaccine, compared to those who are fully vaccinated. The risk is still low in people who have taken both doses.
New variants are dodging immunity
Experts say a vaccine made for any disease cannot be considered 100 percent effective. Vaccines designed for the prevention of Kovid-19 have proved effective in studies. The vaccine is believed to be very effective in preventing serious disease and death from corona, although people who have been vaccinated may still be at risk of infection. All corona vaccines are designed by targeting the original variant of the virus. Now, since mutations are causing more infectious variants than the original ones, people who have been vaccinated are also vulnerable to infection.
So is there any benefit in getting vaccinated?
Doctors say that even though cases of infection are being reported in people who have been vaccinated, this does not mean that the vaccines are ineffective. Everyone must take both doses of the vaccine. Most vaccines are capable of eliciting a strong immune response in the body and reducing the risk of symptomatic. Also, people who have taken both doses of the vaccine have a lower risk of serious complications, hospitalization, or death due to infection. This is the reason why everyone must get vaccinated.
The vaccine alone will not provide protection
Health experts say, after getting the vaccine, do not make the mistake of considering yourself completely safe from the corona. Vaccines can only reduce the risk of disease, in such a situation, along with vaccination, all measures to prevent corona must be kept in use. It is important for everyone to wear good masks regularly, follow social distancing and take special care of hand hygiene while going out. Any mistake made in this can make you a victim of infection.
