Coronavirus vaccines came as a sigh of relief for the world, grappled by the viral illness for more than a year now. A larger chunk of the population is still doubtful about taking the vaccine jab, and other group, who have taken the jab are disappointed as we all know certain cases whom have become the victim of the deadly virus even after taking their shots.
Also, there have been certain activities that remain off-limit after people get their dose. But with no choice left, spending a year in restrictions and following all possible safety measures. Vaccine jabs have become a must. The vaccine is presumed to be the preventive way to slow down the surging pandemic. However one must take care of the following points even after taking the jabs-
Don’t Ditch The Masks
One must not simply ditch the masks after getting vaccinated. There is still no proof of the statement that a fully vaccinated person cannot get contracted by the virus. The rate of generating defensive antibodies depends from person to person, while some may not be fully prepared to overcome the deadly virus even after the complete vaccination process.
Masks act as the safest preventive measure, and one must not completely go off the masks in the rarest of situations.
Take Care Of The Infected
While vaccinations are not full proof solutions yet, one thing that an immunized person can do is, that they can take care of the others contracted with the virus. There is always a bleak chance of getting infected from direct contact. This was one of the reasons why shots were prioritized for frontline workers, doctors, and essential staff.
Make Distance From Unvaccinated
There’s still a large section of people that have not accepted the vaccine and hence are more vulnerable. Grouping with such unprotected people can make the cases on a rise again. It’s important to always practice social distancing and follow all the basic preventive measures including hand wash and sanitization, a routine procedure.
Don’t Prepone Your Second Dose
With the little fuss being created everywhere over shots of vaccines, don’t take hasty decisions. It’s important to know that preponing your second dose may not be fruitful as the antibodies may not work for the purpose. It’s better to wait and postpone than to prepone your shot, as soon as many of the options will be available for the same.
Don’t Panic, Even If You Get Symptoms
Covid shots have become a necessity as a preventive measure available, but one must be aware that such a shot is not a guaranteed procedure yet. One may get symptoms and get infected with the virus, while in between the shots or maybe after the shots too. In such cases, one must not panic and follow the medication as per the doctors.
While we all have been directly or indirectly suffered a lot due to this deadly virus, we all must be together in these difficult times. Affinity Greens wishes everyone a safe and healthy life ahead and urges everyone to be fully vaccinated. We really hope to come out of this situation soon and enjoy a stress-free life ahead.
