A dream come true to this covid-19 pandemic is to finally get vaccinated to protect ourselves from this deadly coronavirus disease that infected and killed millions around the world. At the beginning of the distribution of the covid vaccines, people’s mindset was split in half. Some were eager to get vaccinated and some people were speculating about the safety of the vaccines due to the belief that the vaccines were manufactured in haste as a direct effect to high demand and urgency. On top of that, the vaccine conspiracy theories that spread throughout the globe created chaos and scare, resulting in vaccine hesitancy that prevented conspiracy believers from getting the vaccine. The health authorities and government among nations were having a hard time convincing people to get vaccinated during the first vaccination rollout. It took time before the rest of the population was convinced that the vaccines, no matter what the brand is, are safe and effective.
Months after the first vaccination started, those millions of people who were vaccinated are still alive and kicking, and haven’t turned into zombies as conspiracy theories are claiming. This somehow convinced those who were scared to get the vaccine, to finally decide and got their shot.
If you haven’t gotten your covid-19 vaccine yet, please do so because you need to protect yourself. Nobody else will protect yourself from the virus than yourself. If you continue believing in the conspiracy theories, are those people who are into conspiracy theories gonna help you not to get infected? If you get infected with the virus, will they save you? NO! You are the only person you can keep yourself safe. Will those people pay your bills if you will get covid? NO! They’re not gonna pay your covid bills. So why listen to them and believe the rumors they are spreading. The most important thing you can do now is to get the vaccine and save your life.
What You Should Know If You Are Fully Vaccinated
If you are fully vaccinated, it is still not time to party. You still need to abide by the safety protocols. You still need to wear your mask and keep your distance. Why? Because there are still a lot of people who are not vaccinated. Some people still don’t believe in the covid vaccines, some people are still scared and some people cannot get vaccinated due to some health issues. If you catch the virus, although you are already protected, yet, you still have the covid inside you and release it when you breathe, talk, sneeze, and cough. You will be able to pass the virus to those who are not vaccinated.
Another important reason why you still need to follow the covid-19 guidelines is because of the new variants out there:
- The India variant (B.1.617.2) has two key mutations, responsible for the surge in covid cases and fatalities in India in 2021
- The UK or Kent variant (also known as B.1.1.7)
- The South Africa variant (B.1.351)
- The Brazil variant (P.1)
