Vaccination against COVID-19 is being done in India in full swing. Currently, we have three vaccines approved in our country – Covishield, Covaxin, Sputnik V and all these are effective against fighting this deadly contagious infection.
One should certainly take both doses and it is imperative to finish the second jab within the stipulated time for increased protection.
Completing both doses of vaccine against Coronavirus is strongly recommended and one should adhere to it. If you have missed the window for taking the second dose, do not panic. The good news is that you don’t have to repeat from the scratch and take the first dose again.
Schedule it as early as possible. Remember, you will get complete shielding against the virus only after finishing both doses. If you miss the second dose, the efficacy of the vaccine can reduce considerably making you prone to the infection.
Indian citizens above 45 are eligible for taking vaccines and if you have just completed your two doses and feel good about it, Congratulations! However, let us remind you about the dos and don’ts while combating coronavirus, even after taking both doses.
Fortis Hospitals in Bengaluru – Bannerghatta, Cunningham Road, Rajaji Nagar, Nagarbhavi are well-equipped for administering vaccines for those eligible individuals.
Well, all the vaccines that are being administered in India underwent multiple trials and were found to be quite effective in combating the virus. However, it is still unclear if these vaccines would offer partial immunity or complete shielding against Coronavirus. We would know the complete efficacy of these vaccines only a few months down the line. Till then, getting vaccinated is the only way forward to keep this infection at a bay for those who are above 45 and at high risk.
Be mindful of the fact that the virus is still lurking around, and many are still prone to the infection. In case, if there is a family gathering ensure vaccination for all the members. Other precautions like sanitization, masks, and social distancing should be followed for the next few months to a year.
If your loved ones are not vaccinated, avoid visiting them as they may be vulnerable to this contagious infection.
With infection growing at a rapid pace there are many restrictions in India and a majority are city-specific. However, avoid visiting public places as you might be a carrier of infection and may pose a threat to the non-vaccinated.
Do not forget sanitization, masks, and social distancing in public places.
Both domestic and international travel picked up in the last few months. However, avoid international travel if you can. Local travel is kind of safe but not recommended unless very important. A leisurely vacation seems like a distant dream for now as different mutants are emerging. Wait till the efficacy of the vaccines is proved against all the mutants.
