What To Do After Vaccination: The vaccine is the biggest hope of rescue in the country that is devastated by Corona. This vaccine is being administered to millions of people in the country every day and till now several crore people have been vaccinated. About 80 percent of these people are still waiting for the second injection after getting the first vaccine. If you have also got the first injection of this vaccine or you are going to get it done in the next few days, then it is very important for you to know the answers to these questions. This information is even more important because from May 1, the option of getting vaccinated is open to all people above 18 years of age in the country.
Will the first vaccine vaccine protect you from the COVID-19 virus?
The simple answer to this question is no. With the first vaccine vaccine, you will not be safe from infection with the COVID-19 virus. The full effect of the vaccine is revealed only after both injections. That too not immediately after the second vaccine, but about two weeks after that.
How many days after the second vaccine vaccine?
In the initial phase, the second injection of the vaccine was being applied 28 days after the first vaccine, 4 weeks, but now the second dose of Kovishield’s vaccine is given after 6 to 8 weeks i.e. about one to one to two to two months. The decision to increase the difference between the two vaccines of Kovishield was taken after it was revealed that keeping the gap higher increases the effect of the vaccines. However, the second dose of covaxine is still being given between 4 to 6 weeks. 90 per cent of the Corona vaccines applied so far in the country belong to Kovishield.
Is it necessary to have the first and second injections of the same company?
Yes, it is very important that you get both vaccine doses of the same company. So far only two vaccines of COVID-19 are being applied in India – 1. Kovishield and 2. Kovaxin. If you have received the first vaccine from Kovishield, then the second should also be the same. If the first injection was of cocaine, then the second should also be of cocaine. Although this information is available to the vaccinated health professionals, yet if you confirm it on your own behalf, then it will be good.
Will you be completely protected from the virus after both injections?
Two weeks after the vaccine is administered, their full effect begins to work. Nevertheless, it cannot be said with certainty that now the COVID-19 virus will not be able to infect you. Actually, the efficacy of the vaccine being applied in India is up to a maximum of 80 percent. That is, even after applying the vaccine for 20 out of 100 people, there will be a risk of getting corona infected.
If the vaccine does not provide complete protection from infection, then what is the benefit of having it?
The question may come to your mind that when the risk of getting infected does not completely end, even after getting the vaccine, why should it be administered? One answer to this question is that even if the vaccine provides 80 percent protection, it is still the best way to avoid an epidemic in front of you. The second important reason in favor of getting the vaccine is that even if there is a COVID-19 infection after the vaccine, the symptoms of the disease are not too severe. Such patients recover quickly.
Is it necessary to wear a mask even after applying the vaccine?
Yes yes The experience so far suggests that even after applying the vaccine, rules such as wearing masks, washing hands frequently or maintaining a safe distance from others should continue. As you know by now, to develop immunity against corona virus, one has to wait for two weeks after both injections of vaccine. Even after that, vaccines being applied in India still protect only up to 80 percent of the infection.
In the second wave of corona in the country, it has become completely clear that many people are having corona infection even after getting both the vaccines. It is also possible that you may fall ill due to increased immunity from vaccination, but the corona virus can infect others through you. Therefore, as a precaution or precaution, all rules should be followed to protect yourself and others.
What is common after getting vaccinated?
It is common to have some discomfort after the injection of a vaccine. Common side effects of the vaccine are pain, swelling or redness at the site of the vaccine, mild fever, headache, slight weakness or slight pain in the joints, which will be cured in a few days.
What to do, what not to do if you are suffering after being vaccinated?
Where there is an injection, do not apply ice if there is pain. Yes, soaking in clean water can keep it in a painful place. Your doctor may also advise you to take paracetamol for fever or pain. During this time, keep drinking sufficient amount of water. If the side-effects seen after getting vaccinated are more severe or are not curing even after a week, then a doctor should be contacted.
What will happen if I do not get the second one after the first vaccine?
As we have told you, your body’s full ability to fight the COVID-19 virus, that is, immunity develops only two weeks after the second vaccine. In such a situation, if you do not get another vaccine, then the purpose of vaccination will remain incomplete. You will not be able to get protection against pandemics. So get another vaccine at the right time. Yes, if the doctor advises you not to get a second injection or to be late because of any serious side-effects that have occurred after being vaccinated for the first time, or because of some other medical condition, then the matter is different.
