COVID 19 has affected everyone’s health these days. Here is what to do to stay safe and how to prevent yourself. The vaccines are already distributed worldwide however some of them have some side effects.
*If you have had an immediate allergic reaction—even if the reaction was not severe—to a vaccine or injectable therapy for another disease, ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine. Your doctor will help you decide if it is safe for you to get vaccinated.
Recent headlines describe a Moderna vaccine which requires less negative temperatures than the other vaccines. Pfizer has been the one vaccine that required the most specific conditions for storage and transportation.
To protect your health and prevent the virus from spreading, it would be best to wear masks in public places. Additionally, carrying hand sanitizer will improve your hand hygiene and killing the virus.
At the time of this writing, the only vaccines available were Moderna and Pfizer. Meanwhile, additional vaccines came to headlines such as Russias Sputnik V or UK’s Astra Zeneca. Another company called Novavax is researching crafting a vaccine that only requires one dose. Furthermore, they claim this vaccine will not require special storage conditions.
The Pfizer vaccine has allegedly had some unwanted side effects. A group of people in Israel reported testing positive for COVID 19 after they had the immunization shot from BioNTech / Pfizer.
This is somehow strange news, since the Pfizer vaccine – as well as Moderna’s – are made using the new mRNA technology. Through this medical advancement, the vaccine no longer contains a weaker version of the virus ( like Astra Zeneca does). Instead, it uses a protein synthesis technology to stimulate the response of body’s immune system.
Considering that though, it is strange that a group of people could get infected after having the Pfizer shot. Several weeks later a group of elderly people from Norway died after having the vaccine. The official spokespeople of the company mentioned the elderly people already had serious health issues and the vaccination would have been prone to side effects.
COVID 19 and your health remains a serious concern. Best thing to do for you and your loved one’s health is to stop the spreading. Practice social distancing, wash the hands, travel only if necessary and wear a mask in public.
