Vaccine against COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 vaccination helps the body develop immunity to the Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19, without needing to develop natural immunity by getting and recovering from the illness.

Even after vaccination, the development of an immune response will require some time. Continuing to practice prevention such as hand hygiene, wearing masks and maintaining distance is fundamental for 2 reasons:

  • Development of immunity needs time and may not be 100%
  • At this point of time we do not know if vaccination will prevent virus shedding, so vaccinated persons may spread the disease
