The COVID-19 vaccine will reduce the risk of being suffering from the new type of Coronavirus disease as known as COVID-19.
Please be aware that the vaccine is not completely effective like all other medicines. It can take a few weeks for your body to build up protection from the vaccine. There is always a chance to get infected by Coronavirus even with the vaccine; however, the vaccine lessens the severity of any infection. Two doses will reduce the chance of being seriously ill and reduce the risk of death due to Coronavirus.
You still need to follow the health instructions in your workplace and in public areas, such as wearing a mask and keeping the distance from others after you received the COVID-19 vaccine.
The vaccine has some side effects as the other vaccines/medicines, but not everyone gets them.
The most likely side effects that you may experience from the vaccine
- Pain at the injection site
- Redness and hardness of the skin at the injection site
- Muscle aches or pain
- Joint aches or pain
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Underarm gland swelling on the side of study vaccination
If you think you are experiencing any side effects, please remain calm and see your doctor immediately.
If you are currently pregnant or planning to get pregnant or your partner is planning to get pregnant; please see your doctor before getting vaccinated.
