People around the world have been waiting for a COVID19 vaccine since the pandemic has taken a serious toll on them. Two pharmaceutical giants in the US Moderna and Pfizer have announced the rate of success of their vaccines as well. However, doctors have said that the COVID19 vaccine might cause some side effects such as fatigue, muscle ache, and low-grade fever. Some people might feel headaches as well. Health professionals have said that these side effects will start showing up after 72 hours of vaccination. They have warned people that they need to be aware of these side effects beforehand. Upcoming vaccines will need two doses at different time span.
Drug companies and healthcare workers are a little worried that people who will get their first shot of the vaccine, after experiencing the side effects, might not come back for their second shot of the vaccine. Experts from AHM Family Medicine have said that they have vaccines, which are 70 to 90 percent effective; in this case, two doses of the vaccine are required. They have clearly said that for some people, the side effects might be a little severe after the second shot of the vaccine. It can reach a point where people might have to take off from work and rest at home. However, this time off will be nothing compared to if they are diagnosed with COVID19. It will be quite fair to take one or two days off after getting the vaccine rather than staying in quarantine for 14 days and risking the lives of other family members.
The rate of vaccination as well will play a crucial role in lifting restrictions, which have been imposed after the pandemic has hit the country. Experts have reported that the number of COVID19 cases might be much higher than what has been reported. They believe that there might have been around 53 billion cases of COVID19 by September. The number of infected people has been increasing steadily since October, said the experts. The seven-day average of new daily cases has exceeded an average of 171000 cases per day. Many states have imposed new restrictions considering the spike in the COVID19 cases. In such a situation, getting a vaccine will be like a god gift, as per the doctors. A limited supply of the vaccine will be accessible by December, said the experts.
