Should I wear mask after COVID-19 Vaccination ?

The deadly novel coronavirus pandemic has made all of us realise the importance of good health. It has been over a year since COVID-19 hit the world and changed the way we function. From whether you should wear a mask after taking the COVID-19 vaccine to is it normal to experience extremely painful period cycles, we have all the answers for you.

Myth: you don’t need to follow COVID-19 protocol after getting vaccinated
Fact : It is important to get vaccinated and to keep practising precaution in our fight against the novel coronavirus.

Getting vaccinated is not your cue card to stop following COVID-19 precautions,”
Dr Ambanna Gowda, Consultant Internal Medicine,
Fortis Hospital -Cunningham Road.

He further added that it is crucial to get vaccinated despite all the rumour-mongering about side effects of the vaccine.

“It is safe and important to get vaccinated, in this battle against COVID 19. Some of the side effects you can expect after being vaccinated are tiredness, headache, muscle or joint soreness or itching or swelling right away or seven days after vaccination.”

Serious side effects after receiving the vaccine are rare. However, If you develop any serious side effects or a severe allergic reaction including hives, swelling of your face, tongue or throat, or difficulty breathing, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately.

Pro tip - Dr Gowda shares simple tips that you should adopt to try to save yourself from contracting COVID-19. They are:

- Wearing a mask at all time when in public spaces (as you may have immunity from the virus after taking the vaccine but you can spread it to others),
- Frequently wash your hands with soap and avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
- Sanitizing your hands at regular interval and
- Maintaining social distancing.

Dr Gowda further added that we should lookout for people who are sick and are showing symptoms of the infection and maintain safe distance with them.

“Remember that taking all safety measures will ensure your safety as well as those around you,” asserted Dr Gowda.
