Which COVID-19 vaccines are licensed in India?
Two vaccines that have been granted emergency use authorization by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) in India are Covishield® (AstraZeneca’s vaccine manufactured by Serum Institute of India) and Covaxin® (manufactured by Bharat Biotech Limited).
You don’t need to wear a mask if you are vaccinated
According to experts at National Institutes of Health (NIH), the immunity against Covid-19 could be similar to that developed during measles, if you get measles once, you are immune for life. But with Covid-19, this is still a presumption because the longevity of the immunity from the vaccine is yet to be ascertained.
Natural immune system is better than vaccine immunity
The World Health Organization (WHO) advises that intentionally exposing oneself to the virus can lead to more infections. The medical fraternity has raised concern in this regard as the antibody level in a body against the virus varies from person to person.
If you already had Covid-19, you don’t need the vaccine
While it’s true that being infected gives the body certain immunity against virus but there is also evidence that this type of immunity is not long lasting and the chances of catching the infection again is high.
The mRNA vaccine will alter your DNA
The mRNA vaccination is a method of eliciting a response from one’s immune system by introducing inactivated germs into immune systems, which prompts the body to build a specific kind of protein called spike protein, the crucial piece that combats the coronavirus. The protein does not enter the nucleus of the cell and thus cannot affect the DNA.
