Why you can still contract Covid-19 virus after the vaccination

Vaccination is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them. It can also be described as a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease. Covid 19 is a novel pandemic that emanated from China in December 2019 and later spread across almost an Nations in the world. This since that time has become a burden on the heads of Nations and scientists also finding ways and means to come out with a solution which is a vaccine to fight against the disease.

Well, coming out with a vaccine is a good initiative since that is what they world was waiting for. But the fact that there is a vaccine does not mean that one cannot be contracted with the virus. The protocols that are to be observed or were put in place must not be taken for granted. Thus, wearing of the mask, continuous washing of hands with soap under running water, avoidance of physical contact and social distance, avoidance of crowded gathering. There measures should not be neglected or be taken for granted.

The reason why you can contact the disease after the vaccine, taking the dose or the shot does not immediately gets rid of the virus from the system or gives the body immunity instantly. It will take some couple of weeks before the vaccine becomes effective. So if someone is carrying the live SARS-CoV-2 virus can spread it to others when they cough, breath or sneeze. That is why it is still important to mask up even after taking the vaccine. Do not be 100 percent assured that, immediately after the vaccine you are good to go.

Adhere to all the measures that have been put in place. Practise social distancing and other protocols until there is a community vaccination where everybody is vaccinated for a period of time before it will be safe to live a normal life as it used to be. The virus is real. Let's all come together and join hands to be able to fight this novel virus to the end. This too shall surely pass.
