Now that there are authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, accurate vaccine information is critical. Here are Some Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines.
Vaccinations for COVID-19 will not give you COVID-19.
None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently in development or in use in the United States, contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. Several different kinds of vaccines are in development. The goal for each of them, however, is to teach our immune systems how to recognize the virus that causes COVID-19 and fight it. Sometimes this process may cause symptoms such as fever. These symptoms are common and are an indication that the body is building immunity.
After vaccination, it usually takes a few weeks for the body to develop immunity. That implies that a person can be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and get sick. This is because the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
COVID-19 vaccines do not make you test positive for viral COVID-19 tests.
In the United States, neither the recently authorized and recommended vaccines nor the other COVID-19 vaccines currently in clinical trials cause you to test positive for viral tests which are used to decide whether you have a current infection.
If your body produces an immune response that is goal of vaccination, there is a chance that you may test positive on some antibody tests. Antibody tests show that you have had a previous infection and that you may have some level of protection against the virus. Experts are currently studying how COVID-19 vaccination may affect antibody testing results.
People who have become ill with COVID-19 may still benefit from getting a vaccination.
Because of the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that re-infection with COVID-19 is possible, people may be advised to get a COVID-19 vaccine even if they have been sick with COVID-19 before.
At this point, experts do not understand how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. The immunity that someone gains from having an infection, called natural immunity, varies from person to person. Some early evidence indicates natural immunity may not last very long.
We won’t know how long immunity produced by a vaccination lasts until we have a vaccine and more data on how well it works.
The important aspects of COVID-19 that scientists are trying to learn more about are both natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity, and the CDC will keep the public updated as new evidence becomes available.
Getting vaccinated can help prevent getting sick with COVID-19
While several persons with COVID-19 have only a minor illness, some may have a serious illness or may even die. There is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you, even if you are not at increased risk of serious complications. If you get sick, you can also spread the illness to friends, family, and others around you. COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating an antibody response without having to experience sickness.
Receiving an mRNA vaccine will not alter your DNA
mRNA stands for messenger ribonucleic acid and can be described as instructions for how to make a protein or even just a piece of a protein.mRNA is not able to alter or modify a person’s genetic makeup (DNA). The mRNA from the COVID-19 vaccine will never reach the cell nucleus, which is where our DNA is kept. This implies the mRNA does not affect or interact with our DNA in any way. Instead, COVID-19 vaccines that use mRNA work with the body’s natural defenses to safely develop protection (immunity) to disease.
These were some amazing and latest facts about COVID-19 vaccines.
