Here are some General Information about the Covid-19 Vaccine

How Covid-19 Vaccine Works

 The COVID-19 vaccines produce protection against the disease, as a result of developing an immune response to the SARS-Cov-2 virus. Developing immunity through vaccination means there is a reduced risk of developing the illness and its consequences. This immunity helps you fight the virus if exposed.

What to Expect after Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine

Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short-term, and not everyone gets them. Even if you do have symptoms after the first dose, you still need to have the second dose.

Although you may get some protection from the first dose, having the full recommended course will give you the best protection against the virus.


Very common side effects in the first day or two include:


·     having a painful, heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you had your injection

·     feeling tired

·     headache, aches and chills

 

Continue Practicing Safety Precautions

In the meantime, and even after you are vaccinated, it’s important to continue to follow the safety precautions that have worked to limit the spread so far:

·     Wear a mask

·     Practice social distancing

·     Wash your hands frequently

·     Stay home if you are sick


  Get your vaccines now and lets all be protected together!
