The COVID-19 vaccine will reduce the risk of suffering from the new type of Coronavirus disease as known as COVID-19.
Please be aware that the vaccine is not completely effective like all other medicines. It can take a few weeks for your body to build up protection from the vaccine. There is always a chance of getting infected by Coronavirus even with the vaccine; however, the vaccine lessens the severity of any infection. Two doses will reduce the chance of being seriously ill and reduce the risk of death due to Coronavirus.
This vaccine does not give you COVID-19 infection, but you still need to follow the health instructions in your workplace and in public areas, such as wearing a mask and keeping a distance from others.
The vaccine has some side effects as the other vaccines/medicines, but not everyone gets them.
The most likely side effects that you may experience from the vaccine
If you are currently pregnant or planning to get pregnant or your partner is planning to get pregnant; please see your doctor before getting vaccinated.
