The first people who are offered the COVID-19 vaccine are those most at risk from complications of the COVID-19. This includes older adults in care homes, frontline health and social care workers and the over 80s.
They require two doses of the same vaccine to give them the best protection. You'll be given a record card after your first dose wherein the name of the vaccine given to you and your second appointment is written on. But in Mum's card the second appointment date, is not filled. The clinic will phone us for the next appointment.
Vaccines can cause side effects like all medicines. Not everyone experiences it but most of these are mild and short term. You still need to have the second dose even if you have symptoms after taking the first dose. This will give you the best protection against the COVID-19 virus.
Common side effects include:
mild flu-like symptoms
heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you get the jab
You can rest and take paracetamol to help make you feel better as advised.
The vaccine has been tested in several different countries in more than 20,000 people and shown to be safe. The COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to reduce the chance of you suffering from the COVID-19 disease.
It will take a few weeks for our body to build up protection from the vaccine. No vaccine is completely effective, like all medicines so it's our responsibility to take the recommended and extra precaution to avoid any infection. We still might get the COVID-19 despite having the vaccine but it would be less severe.
People can believe what they want to believe. COVID-19 spreads through droplets which we breathed out from our nose or mouth when we speak or cough. We can also pick the virus by touching our eyes, nose and mouth with contaminated objects. The vaccine is here to help protect us, most especially those most vulnerable. You cannot catch COVID -19 from the vaccine but it is possible that you have caught the virus and not realise you have the symptoms until after you're given the vaccine.
Mum didn't experience anything wrong with her after taking the vaccine. No soreness or headache, there's nothing. She's perfectly fine. And it gives her peace of mind of catching the virus although there's still the possibility of getting it, we know that she's still protected.
"Vaccine didn't do me any harm."
I know that some of you or maybe most of you are against the vaccine. I can understand my Mum in law why she's great about the vaccine. She was born in 1933 at those time there are these diseases polio, whooping cough and others. Her brother got polio that didn't make his life easy up to these days. There's no vaccine at that time. Her son, my brother in law always experience whooping cough that upsets her. Then vaccine was made those days and from then on they have the ways to stop polio and other disease. They save lives.
Then The Queen got her COVID-19 vaccine as well before she gets her. Maybe to show people her confidence regarding the vaccine.
