Still concerned about getting Covid-19 vaccine? Here are the benefits of receiving it


- Advertisment -

While the UAE has exceeded two million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine on Tuesday, January 19, thousands of people are still concerned about getting the vaccine. 

On its website, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) affirmed that one cannot be sick with the Covid-19 if he or she gets the vaccine. “None of the Covid-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes Covid-19 so a Covid-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with Covid,” CDC wrote. 

Matter of factly, CDC said the vaccination will help one from getting the virus. 

“All Covid-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be highly effective at preventing Covid-19. All Covid-19 vaccines that are in development are being carefully evaluated in clinical trials and will be authorized or approved only if they make it substantially less likely you’ll get Covid-19,” it added. 

As of Wednesday, January 20, 15.7 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have already been administered in the US. The tally of vaccine doses is both from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech. 

“Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases and early data from clinical trials, experts believe that getting a Covid-19 vaccine may also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get Covid-19. Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk for severe illness from Covid-19,” CDC added. 

Experts still continue to conduct more studies about the effects of Covid-19 vaccinations on the severity of illness from Covid-19, as well as its ability to keep people from spreading the virus that causes Covid-19, it further added. 

CDC said that vaccination against Covid-19 is also a safer way to help build protection and an important tool to help the pandemic. 

“Wearing masks and social distancing help reduce your chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed,” CDC added.
