Basic answers to the coronavirus vaccine

The new coronavirus vaccines, how safe are they?

We are now in a confused and panicking world, as the coronavirus daily takes its toll on humanity. The whole world is mourning facing the challenges of getting vaccines but how safe are the vaccines since there are rumors and media reports that some of the vaccines are extremely dangerous? 

However, these are some answered questions many worldwide want to know. Who can get vaccinated? Where can I find out about the results of clinical trials? Can I forget about the mask after vaccination? 

Find answers to the main questions about the COVID-19 vaccine in this article.

Do you need a vaccination for those who have already had coronavirus?

First, you need to get tested for antibodies. If the IgG index is higher than 10, then immunity is already being formed and vaccination is not needed.

Can the vaccine be used to treat people who are already sick?

The vaccine is intended to prevent disease. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you cannot get vaccinated.

Can I get vaccinated for those who got the flu shot? Does the coronavirus vaccine also protect against influenza?

Vaccination against coronavirus is allowed 30 days after any other vaccinations. However, it does not protect against the flu, so both vaccinations are recommended.

At the stage of post-registration clinical trials, vaccination of pregnant women is not carried out. Therefore, you do not need a coronavirus vaccine to enter the maternity hospital. 

In medical institutions, the necessary measures are observed for the safety of the mother and child. All patients are tested for COVID-19 upon admission. If the diagnosis is confirmed, then women are placed in separate wards.

Can a child be vaccinated?

As part of post-registration clinical trials, only people over 18 years of age can be vaccinated against coronavirus.

Can animals be vaccinated?

No, as part of post-marketing clinical trials, only people over 18 are vaccinated.

Who shouldn’t get the coronavirus vaccine? Are there any contraindications?

Vaccination should not be given to those who have had acute coronary syndrome or stroke in the past year. Contraindications are also chronic systemic infections, tuberculosis, neoplasms, hepatitis B and C, syphilis, HIV.

In addition, both women and men should not participate in the study if they plan to conceive a child in the next three months.

Is it true that a vaccine is the most reliable remedy for a virus?

Numerous medical studies in the field of epidemiology have proven that vaccination is the best protection against infectious diseases. It allows you to create natural immunity to a specific pathogen, which prevents the development of the disease and its complications.

After vaccination,  what if I feel sick after being vaccinated?

If you feel unwell, you should consult the doctor accompanying the patient in the study as soon as possible. 

Can I get other vaccinations, such as yellow fever, if I have already received the coronavirus vaccine?

Vaccination against other diseases is permitted. There should be 30 days between vaccinations.

Is self-isolation necessary before or after coronavirus vaccination?

No, you can lead a normal life but do not forget about the general topical precautions: social distance and mouth mask in public places.

Do I need to wear a mask and gloves after vaccination?

After vaccination, it is necessary to comply with the general sanitary and epidemiological requirements, that is, keep a social distance and use a mask and gloves in public places.
